carbon bond mechanism

A type of lumped chemical mechanism used in the modeling of atmospheric organic chemistry, usually in urban areas.

In the carbon bond mechanism, each carbon atom is treated in the model according to what species are bonded to it. That is, all singly bonded carbon atoms are treated together as a single entity, as are all aromatic carbon atoms, etc.
