Title

Overall rate constant measurements of the reactions of alkene-derived hydroxyalkylperoxy radicals with nitric oxide

Abstract

The overall rate constants of the NO reaction with hydroxyalkylperoxy radicals derived from the OH-initiated oxidation of several atmospherically abundant alkenes- ethene, propene, 1-butene, 2-butene, 2-methyl propene, 1,3-butadiene, and isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene)-were determined using the turbulent flow technique and pseudo first-order kinetic conditions with high pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry for the direct detection of hydroxyalkylperoxy radical reactants. The individual 100 Torr, 298 K rate constants for each alkene system were found to be identical within the 95% confidence interval associated with each separate measurement. The average overall rate constant for the reaction of all alkene-derived hydroxyalkylperoxy radicals with NO was determined to be 9.1 ± 0.5 (2WEIRD"O")*10^{-12}cm^{3} molecule^{-1}s^{-1}. Previous studies of this reaction for the ethene, 2-methyl propene and isoprene systems reported varying rate constant values that ranged from a factor of two lower to a factor of two higher than the present result. However, the invariant nature and value of the present rate constant determination closely parallels the results obtained in the measurement of rate constants for the reactions of several alkane-derived peroxy radicals with NO.
