Short summary
This work expands upon the recently developed multivariate relative rate technique, presented in Shaw et al. (2019), for the measurement of rates of reaction between aromatic and aliphatic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and OH. Knowledge of the rates of such reactions are important for understanding air quality in urban environments. This work also provides a key validation of structure–activity relationship models, which provide a theoretical method for estimating OH + VOC kinetics.
