Graphical Abstract

Atmospheric free radicals are important oxidants in all tropospheric phases. The cover picture shows a simplified scheme of the complex radical chemistry within the tropospheric multiphase system. The picture demonstrate the necessity to consider chemical reactions, photolysis processes and phase transfer processes in all atmospheric phases in order to describe the tropospheric chemistry, as shown by H. Herrmann et al. on p. 3796.
