Short summary
The gas-phase reactions of organic compounds in the atmosphere are a crucial step in the degradation of anthropogenic and biogenic emissions and the formation of secondary pollutants. This work is an attempt to produce a dataset that is as comprehensive as possible regarding the multitude of chemicals that react in the atmosphere. We find that we are able to make substantial improvements upon previous compendia and that this progress will help improve our understanding of atmospheric chemistry.
