Kinetics and mechanisms of the gas-phase reactions of OH radicals with three C15 alkanes

Abstract : The reaction constants and products for the reactions of OH radicals with different C15 alkanes, were determined by using Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrum (PTR-MS) in the smog chamber. Rate coefficients (in units of 10−11 cm3 molecule−1 s−1) k1(pentadecane) = 1.72 ± 0.18,k2(2,6,10-trimethyldodecane) = 1.90 ± 0.20, k3(nonylcyclohexane) = 2.09 ± 0.22 were first obtained by the relative rate method using toluene and m-xylene as reference compounds at (298 ± 1)K and atmospheric pressure. In addition, the products of these reactions were measured by PTR-MS simultaneously. The results show that the major gas phase products observed in the OH radicals reactions were aldehydes and ketones for C15 alkanes. The possible reaction mechanisms were speculated and the atmospheric implications were also discussed.
