Summary

It seems that every few months we read about another missing aspect of atmospheric chemistry—from missing products and missing reactivity to missing sources and missing understanding. The report by Paulot et al. on page 730 of this issue (1) thus comes as a relief: It provides more answers than questions on a topic of considerable interest to atmospheric scientists, the formation of gas- and aerosol-phase products from the atmospheric oxidation of isoprene.
