The described investigations are focused on peroxides occurring as products in atmospheric chemical processes, namely, hydrogen peroxide, methylhydroperoxide, hydroxymethylhydroperoxide, bis-(hydroxymethyl)peroxide, 1-hydroxyethylhydroperoxide, bis-(hydroxyethyl)peroxide, and hydroxymethylmethylperoxide. The compounds are identified and determined through the position and intensity of their characteristic O-O stretching bands in the range between 767 and 878 cm-1.Time-resolved Raman spectroscopy of peroxide solutions permits the in situ investigation of pathways and kinetics of reactions between peroxides and aldehydes.
