    Alkyl and alkylperoxy radicals originating from dimethyl ether have been studied in the gas phase at 296 K. A pulse radiolysis-UV absorption technique was used. Absorption cross-sections were quantified over the wavelength range 220-350 nm. At 230 nm, sigma(CH3OCH2) = (4.2 +/- 0.5) X 10(-18) cm(2) molecule(-1) has been obtained. Rate constants for the reaction of the alkylperoxy radical with NO and NO2 were determined to be (9.1 +/- 1.0) X 10(-12) cm(3) molecule(-1) s(-1) and (7.9 +/- 0.4) X 10(-12) cm(3) molecule(-1) s(-1), respectively.
