CH3O2 Intercomparison

The above figure shows an example of the excellent comparison between CH3O2 measured using the FAGE methodology (red) with that determined by CRDS (black). The FAGE methodology has been developed at Leeds, whilst the CRDS studies for CH3O2 was developed by Grant Ritchie’s group in Oxford and brought up to Leeds for an intercomparison in the HIRAC chamber. Further work is on-going to look at the kinetics of CH3O2 reactions using both monitoring techniques.
