ABSTRACT

Multiphase acid-catalyzed oxidation with hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) has been suggested recently to be a potential route to SOA formation from isoprene and its gas-phase oxidation products, the kinetics and chemical mechanism of this process have not been well-known yet. In this work, the uptake of 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol (MBO), an important biogenic hydrocarbon and structurally similar to isoprene, into aqueous mixed solutions of H(2)O(2) and sulfuric acid (H(2)SO(4)) was performed using a rotated wetted-wall reactor coupled to a differentially pumped single-photon ionization time of flight mass spectrometer (RWW-SPI-TOFMS). The reactive uptake coefficients (γ) were acquired for the first time and the reaction pathways were deduced according to products information. The reactive uptake coefficients of MBO into H(2)SO(4)-H(2)O(2) mixed solutions are much greater than that into H(2)SO(4) solutions. Acetaldehyde, acetone and an on-line product, which transformed to isoprene readily in the duration of an off-line experiment, were suggested as products in this process. The further reactions of the carbonyl products can occur in acidic solution, which may play a role in SOA formation. Additionally, in real atmosphere the on-line product is apt to transform to isoprene, an acknowledged precursor of biogenic SOA. Thus, the multiphase acid-catalyzed oxidation of MBO with H(2)O(2) might be a potential contributor to SOA loading.
