A new experimental method was reported for the simultaneous study of reactions between multiple different volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and OH. This technique is based upon established relative rate concepts but has the advantage of a much higher throughput of target VOCs. By evaluating multiple VOCs in each experiment, and through measurement of the depletion in each VOC after reaction with OH, the OH+VOC reaction rate coefficients were be derived. The reported uncertainty is 1σ.
