Short summary
This study found that the coexisting NO2 and/or C2H2 had significant influences on heterogeneous oxidation of SO2 due to the ubiquitous interactions between organic and inorganic species, and their effects were different under dark conditions or with UV irradiation. The experimental results of this study highlighted the requirement to consider the influence of coexisting organics and other inorganic gases in the heterogeneous oxidation kinetics of SO2.
