Abstract

Measurements of ≥C3 alkyl nitrates, perchlorethylene, and bromoform were made during the Mauna Loa Observatory Photochemistry Experiment (MLOPEX). The median mixing ratios of these compounds in free tropospheric air (3.4 km) were 2.3, 3.2, and .20 pptv, respectively. Evidence suggests that simple alkyl nitrates are not the source of "missing' odd nitrogen in the remote atmosphere. -from Authors
