Through many interactions, the composition and chemistry of the atmosphere are inherently connected to the climate system since atmospheric pollutants initiate chemical reactions affecting the climatically important compounds such as greenhouse gases. Therefore, when considering climate–chemistry interactions in the atmosphere, it is not only important to study the emissions of the climate compounds, but also to consider the chemical processes and the distribution of the compounds in the atmospheric regions by assessing their atmospheric sources and fates and determining their lifetimes. A considerable amount of kinetic studies has been carried out in this field. Consequently, progressive improvements in the database…
