not yet rated|write a review
This text reviews many of the aspects of the chemistry of the aromatic hydrocarbons and a consensus evaluation of the data by seven of the leading atmospheric scientists. The book covers topics ranging from the relative importance of the compounds in ozone and haze development to methods ofestimating elemantary rate coefficients based on structural features of the compounds to mechanisms of aerosol generation and atmostpheric reaction of the polycyclic compounds to photochemical processes. It identifies features of the aromatic hydrocarbons requiring further study and appendicies givethe structural formulas and nomenclature of the compounds reviewed in the book.

Editorial Reviews

"Seven members of the Coordinating Research Council's Review Panel on the Atmospheric Chemistry of the Hydrocarbons submit their technical report of research supported by a number of government agencies and industrial groups. They consider the importance of aromatic hydrocarbons in thechemistry of ozone generation in the urban atmosphere, reactions of aromatic compounds with OH radicals, reactions of ozone with aromatic compounds, primary photochemical processes of the hydrocarbons and some of their common oxidation products, applications to modeling atmospheric chemistry, areasfor further study, and other topics."--SciTech Book News
