Title:   Does acetone react with HO2 in the upper-troposphere?
Journal:   Atmos. Chem. Phys.
Volume:   12
Page(s):   1339 - 1351
Year:   2012

Reference type:   Journal article
Squib:   2012DIL/POZ1339-1351

Reaction:   Acetone + HO2 → (CH3)2C(OH)OO
Reaction order:   2
Temperature:   207 K
Pressure:  3.33E-2 bar
Rate expression:   2.0x10-12 [cm3/molecule s]
Rate constant is a lower limit.
Category:  Experiment
Data type:   Absolute value measured directly
Pressure dependence:   None reported
Experimental procedure:   Static or low flow - Data taken vs time
Excitation technique:   Flash photolysis (laser or conventional)
Time resolution:   In real time
Analytical technique:   Laser induced fluorescence
Comments:   Reaction with NO converted HO2 to OH for detection by laser induced fluorescence. Reduced yields of OH at T < 220K provided indirect evidence for the sequestration of HO2 by acetone. No evidence for this reaction was observed at T > 230 K, probably due to rapid thermal dissociation.
