      trate, CH3C(O)OONO2 (peroxy acetyl nitrate or PAN). PAN is a key odd-nitrogen component of photochemical smog (Finlayson-Pitts and Pitts, ), and it serves both as a tem-porary reservoir and as a global transporter for NOx. PAN often accounts for the largest fraction of all odd-nitrogen compounds (NOy) in the atmosphere, especially at high lat-. Start studying AP Enviro Ch.

Peroxyacetyl nitrate is a peroxyacyl is a secondary pollutant present in photochemical is thermally unstable and decomposes into peroxyethanoyl radicals and nitrogen dioxide gas. It is a lachrymatory substance. Peroxyacetyl nitrate, or PAN, is an oxidant that is more stable thanit is more capable of long-range transport than iations: PAN.

Figure 1 shows the structure of an example of PAN. PANs are a secondary pollutant since they form in the atmosphere after the emission of primary pollutants. Peroxyacyl nitrates (also known as Acyl peroxy nitrates, APN or PANs) are powerful respiratory and eye irritants present in photochemical are nitrates produced in the thermal equilibrium between organic peroxy radicals by the gas-phase oxidation of a variety of volatile organic compounds (), Peroxyacetyl nitrate in the Calgary atmosphere book by aldehydes and other oxygenated VOCs oxidizing in the presence of NO 2.

Other articles where Peroxyacetyl nitrate is discussed: agricultural technology: Products of combustion: Ethylene, ozone, and peroxyacetyl nitrate are produced as reaction products in the air and are clearly implicated in plant injury. In addition, certain bisulfites and nitrogen dioxide are under suspicion; there are probably others.

Ozone is a major air pollutant affecting agriculture. Peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) Peroxyacetyl nitrate in the Calgary atmosphere book observed to exceed 30 ppb during five days of the study, with peroxypropionyl nitrate (PPN) and peroxybutryl nitrate (PBN). Peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) in air has been well known as the indicator of photochemical smog due to its frequent occurrences in Seoul metropolitan area.

This study was implemented to assess the distribution characteristics of atmospheric PAN in association with relevant parameters measured by: 9. Based on the measured atmospheric distributions of ethane and propane (at midlatitudes in the northern hemisphere) and a simplified mechanism for their oxidation, it is predicted that acetaldehyde, acetone, and PAN [CH 3 C(O)OONO 2] are ubiquitous components of the troposphere and the lower e acetaldehyde concentrations (from ethane oxidation) of 22 parts per trillion (ppt Cited by: Predicted data is generated using the US Environmental Protection Agency’s EPISuite™.

Peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) formed in the atmospheric oxidation of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs) is the principal tropospheric reservoir for nitrogen oxide radicals (NOx = NO + NO2).

Aircraft measurements of peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) and other important reactive nitrogen species (NO, NO 2, HNO 3, peroxypropionyl nitrate (PPN), CH 3 ONO 2, NO y) were performed at high latitudes over North America and Greenland during July–Augustat all altitudes between 0 and 6 km as part of an Arctic Boundary Layer Expedition (ABLE 3A).).

Complementing these were measurements of C Cited by: Peroxyacetyl nitrate (CH 3 C(O)O 2 NO 2, PAN) is one of the products of photochemical reactions in the troposphere (Roberts, ). It plays an important role in many atmo spheric processes and has a major impact on urban and regional air quality (Nielsen et al., ; Kourtidis et al., ; Williams II et al., ).

High reactivity of NOx (lifetime of days) precludes hemispheric-scale transport and it has been Cited by:   It has been proposed that important quantities of nitrogen oxides may be contained in the form of peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) especially in the colder regions of.

Peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) is an important indicator of photochemical smog and has adverse effects on human health and vegetation growth. A rapid and highly selective technique of thermal dissociation–chemical ionization mass spectrometry (TD-CIMS) was recently developed to measure the abundance of PAN in real time; however, it may be subject to artifact in the presence of nitric oxide (NO).Cited by: 7.

Other articles where Peroxyacetyl nitrate injury is discussed: plant disease: Toxic chemicals: peroxyacetyl nitrate injury (also called oxidant injury) are more prevalent in and near cities with heavy traffic problems. Exhaust gases from internal combustion engines contain large amounts of hydrocarbons (substances that principally contain carbon and hydrogen molecules—gasoline, for example).

peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) in the Upper Troposphere (UT) from atmospheric infrared limb-sounding spectrometers is assessed. PAN is an important compound in UT chemistry both through its direct influence on the oxidising power of the atmosphere and also through its indirect role as a reservoir species for active by: 8.

The more abundant of these other products include formaldehyde, nitric acid, peroxyacetyl nitrate and sulfate. Aldehydes are the most abundant group of such products. At the time of maximum ozone concentration, these other products in combination can constitute about half of the ozone concentration in the South Coast Air Basin of California.
