Short summary
Organic compounds are emitted in large amounts from natural and human-influenced sources. Peroxy radicals are key intermediates formed during oxidation of organic compounds, and play a central role in mechanisms forming pollutants such as ozone and organic particles. Due to the large number of different peroxy radicals formed, it is impossible to study the rates of all of their reactions, and most have to be estimated. Updated and new estimation methods are reported for use in atmospheric models
