This review is the third in a series devoted to a critical assessment of the literature concerning certain species that play roles in the chemistry of the Earth's atmosphere. A group of radicals of very great importance for the atmosphere is that of the monoxides of the halogens , XO (ClO, BrO, IO, and possibly FO as well). This review attempts to summarize current knowledge of the physics and chemistry of these radicals, and of a series of related compounds that may be their sources, reservoirs or sinks, and to put that knowledge into the context of its relevance for atmospheric studies.
