Description - The Mechanisms of Atmospheric Oxidation of the Alkenes by Jack G. Calvert

The formation of smog in urban atmospheres involves the interaction of sunlight with an air mixture containing nitrogen oxides and reactive hydrocarbons - the most reactive class of these hydrocarbons being alkenes. This text, by a team of leading atmospheric chemists, reviews and evaluates the existing literature on the atmospheric chemistry of these compounds, focusing on the search for a more quantitative understanding of the phenomenon which can then be applied to control methods. It includes examinations of the reactions of alkenes and even suggests areas for further laboratory studies.
