New highly reactive chemical discovered in the atmosphere

Millions of tonnes of a class of extremely reactive chemicals called hydrotrioxides can linger in the atmosphere for several hours, a new study has found, which could have implications for human health and the global climate.

Chemicals interact extremely quickly with other compounds, and their presence means chemists will have to rethink how processes occur in the atmosphere.
