The Chapman Mechanism In the 1930s Sidney Chapman devised a mechanism that accounted as long as the ozone layer in addition to the temperature structure. O2 + h O + O O + O2 + M O3 + M O3 + h O2 + O O3 + O 2O2 Until 1964 the Chapman reactions were thought to be the principal processes governing the ozone balance in the stratosphere. However, measurements indicated that the actual concentration of ozone is smaller than that predicted by about a factor of two to four. Predictions of ozone concentrations by the Chapman mechanism compared with observations at Panama, 1970. Catalytic Ozone Destruction. For a chemical to significantly affect the overall concentration of ozone it either must be present in great abundance or must be involved in a catalytic cycle. Breakthroughs in the 1970’s identified a number of NATURAL catalytic processes that all have the as long as m: X + O3 XO + O2 XO + O X + O2 net : O3 + O 2O2 Where X = H, OH, NO, Cl or Br.

CFCs: Molina in addition to Rowl in addition to Nature 249, 810-812 (1974) Importance of reservoirs If the catalysts carried on unabated they would themselves destroy the ozone layer, but happily there are termination reactions that lead to the as long as mation of reservoir species e.g. Cl + CH4 HCl + CH3 ClO + NO2 ClONO2 Active (radicals) Inactive (reservoirs) The ozone hole 27th Anniversary Farman et al.

Ventilation rates Mechanically ventilated – sealed building, air sucked in in addition to pumped out, regulated by levels of CO2. Outdoor air pumped in but filtered to remove particles. Naturally ventilated – leaky buildings (most dwellings in addition to many offices), too hot, open a window, too cold, close off room. Inevitable ingress of outdoor air. 2. Emissions in addition to deposition Many chemicals released indoors are also released outdoors but depending on confinement in addition to ventilation, exposure levels indoors may be much much higher in addition to last as long as much longer. Typical sources indoors include; fabrics, varnishes, paint, cooking, heating systems, air fresheners! Cleaning products (with added scents) Some examples of chemicals indoors Paradichlorobenzene Moth crystals, room deodorants Methylene chloride Paint removers, solvent usage Formaldehyde Pressed wood products, foam Styrene Insulation, textiles, disinfectants, plastics, paints Acetaldehyde Glues, deodorants, fuels, preventives, mold growth on leathers Acrolein Component of oak-wood, by-product of the combustions of wood, kerosene in addition to cotton

3. Light levels Glass will cut off high energy UV light from the Sun in addition to will reduce visible light levels. General shading by buildings will also reduce light levels in general. All this means that Chemistry is much slower indoors than outdoors but the build up can be greater because of the slow air movement.
