Short summary
A multi-reagent ion chemical ionization mass spectrometer was developed to quantify formic acid, acetic acid and hydroxyacetaldehyde (referred to as acetic acid equivalent sum, AAES), hydrogen peroxide and methyl peroxide. This set-up was successfully deployed in the field during the 2014 Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Exp. Laboratory and field work allowed the post-mission quantification of both formic acid and AAES sum during the 2012 Deep Convective Clouds and Chem. Exp.
