Foliar uptake by plants represents an important sink for
many air pollutants. In this, the first of two companion
papers, a continuous-flow, well-mixedexposure chamber
wasused to studythe fluxesofgaseoushydrogen peroxide
to red spruce saplings. Wall losses were found to be
substantial and highly variable, requiring frequent wall
loss measurements throughout the course of the experi-
ments. No significant difference was observed between
daytime and nighttime lossesof hydrogen peroxide to the
needle branches. The pseudo-second-order reaction rate
