ROS molecules like organic hydroperoxides (ROOH) can be formed from: (1) reactions of stabilized biradicals with H2O (reaction 15); (2) unimolecular isomerization of biradicals (reaction 16); (3) reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (ROO·) and hydroperoxyl (HO2·) radicals (reaction 17) (Seinfeld and Pandis 2006): 1. 15) 2. ( CH 3 )2 C ⋅ OO. 16) 3. 17) Self-reactions of large ROO· radicals may form organic peroxides (ROOR) with very low volatility and high importance in SOA formation (Ziemann 2002).
