Scientist identify a new oxidant “X”

  • A new oxidant “X” has been identified which plays a significant role in the formation of gaseous Sulphuric acid in the atmosphere.
  • Until now, it was thought that the combination of OH (hydroxyl radical) oxidant with sulphur dioxide (SO{-2}) was responsible for the formation of gaseous sulphuric acid in the atmosphere.
  • It is considered to contribute the formation of 50% of the total sulphuric acid produced in the atmosphere. Scientist relate the formation of “X” with “reaction of surface emission, such as naturally produced hydrocarbons, with ozone.”
