When you can, check these also. I apologize, I'm a little nerded out about this.

"Even on a relatively calm day, the Earth’s atmosphere is a swirling mix of gases that react faster than the human eye can see. In order to model these reactions, scientists have generally simplified the problem by treating them as occurring sequentially. However, a new study by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and two universities in the United Kingdom demonstrates a new method for obtaining more accurate measurements of these atmospheric processes.

In order to calculate the mathematics of how chemical reactions proceed, called reaction rate coefficients, scientists had by and large looked at the interaction of molecules that were in “thermal equilibrium,” meaning that the internal energies of the molecules are determined only by the temperature."

"Bimolecular reactions in Earth’s atmosphere are generally assumed to proceed between reactants whose internal quantum states are fully thermally relaxed. Here, we highlight a dramatic role for vibrationally excited bimolecular reactants in the oxidation of acetylene. The reaction proceeds by preliminary adduct formation between the alkyne and OH radical, with subsequent O2 addition."
