The 'Chemical Amplifier' technique for measurement of peroxy radicals in air is based on measurement of NO(2) generated by a chain reaction initiated by peroxy-radicals. The response of the method to a series of n-alkyl peroxy radicals has been tested in the laboratory. For the peroxy-alkyl radicals in the range C(1) to C(5), a decreasing signal was found for increasing number of carbon atoms.
