Atmospheric Chemistry of 2-Methoxypropene and 2-Ethoxypropene: Kinetics and Mechanism Study of Reactions with Ozone
AbstractRate coefficients at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure for the reaction of ozone with 2-methoxypropene (2-MPE) and 2-ethoxypropene (2-EPE) were determined in an evacuable 100 L Teflon reaction chamber using absolute and relative rate methods. The product experiments were carried out using a 50 L Teflon reaction chamber in conjunction with FTIR as the detection technique. The rate coefficients (k in units of cm3 molecule−1 s−1) obtained are 1.18 ± 0.13 × 10−17 and 1.89 ± 0.23 × 10−17 for reactions with 2-MPE and 2-EPE, respectively. The effects of the alkoxy group on the gas-phase reactivity of alkyl vinyl ethers toward ozone are compared and discussed. The major ozonolysis products are methyl acetate, formaldehyde and CO2 for 2-MPE, and ethyl acetate, formaldehyde and CO2 for 2-EPE. Possible mechanisms for the two vinyl ethers are proposed based on the observed reaction products. Additionally, atmospheric lifetimes of 32 h and 21 h for 2-MPE and 2-EPE were estimated based on the measured rate constants and the ambient tropospheric concentration of ozone, respectively. The obtained values of the lifetimes indicate that the reaction with ozone is an important loss process for these vinyl ethers in the atmosphere, especially in polluted areas. View Full-Text
