Measurements of sensitivity for different peroxy radicals of the "Chemical Amplifier" technique
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.
