The photolysis rates of HCHO, DCDO, CH3CHO, and CH3CDO are studied by long-path FTIR spectroscopy in natural tropospheric conditions at the European Photoreactor Facility (EUPHORE) in Valencia, Spain. Average relative photolysis rates jHCHO/jDCDO = 3.15 ± 0.08 and jCH3CHO/jCH3CDO = 1.26 ± 0.03 are obtained from three days of experiments for each reaction in the period June 17 to July 7, 2006.
