Abstract

The heterogeneous chemistry taking place in and on the films which coat impervious urban surfaces has received almost no attention to date. The chemical composition of such surface films suggests that heterogeneous oxidation reactions and photochemical transformations could play important roles in the environment, potentially affecting local air quality. In this paper we briefly review our work in this area.
