A study of the oxidation mechanism of N-methyl pyrrolidinone (C5H9NO, NMP) initiated by hydroxyl radicals was made at EUPHORE at atmospheric pressure (1000 ± 10) mbar of air and ambient temperature (T = 300 ± 5 K). The main products were N-methyl succinimide (NMS) (52 ± 4)% and N-formyl pyrrolidinone (FP) (23 ± 9)%. The relative rate technique was used to determine the rate constants of OH with NMP, NMS and FP, the measured values were (in units of cm3 molecule − 1 s− 1): kNMP = (2.2 ± 0.4) × 10− 11, kNMS = (1.4 ± 0.3) × 10− 12 and kFP = (6 ± 1) × 10− 12. The results are presented and discussed in terms of the atmospheric impact.
