Still in 1900, it was stated that ammonia never exists freely (i. , in gaseous form) in air but only in compounds with carbonate and others (Blücher 1900). Other atmospheric trace gases were known from the experiments by Priestley, around 1774 (HCl, NOx, HNO3, SO2) but not yet identified in air. Cavendish (1785) and Priestley (1788) described the HNO3 formation in moisture air under the influence of electric discharges. Only around 1900 were all these gases (NH3, HNO3, and HNO2) directly identified in the atmosphere.

Localized catastrophic environmental events, like the smog events in Los Angeles (1944) and London (1952), helped to initiate atmospheric chemistry as a new discipline from the beginning of the 1950s. It is remarkable that the mixing of air (as it was still regarded as a uniform body) and water with pollutants (accurately referred to as “foreign bodies” in the old terminology) has been known since Aristotle. ): … in Clouds of Smoake and Sulphur, so full of Stink and Darkness … It is this horrid Smoake which obscures our Churches, and makes our Palaces look old, which fouls our Clothes, and corrupts the Waters, so as the very Rain, and refreshing Dew which fall in the several Seasons, precipitate this impure vapour, which, with its black and tenacious quality, spots and contaminates whatever is exposed to it.

This gas was feared by coal miners, who called it “firedamp” because it caused dangerous explosions. Natural sources of phosphurated hydrogen (phosphine PH3) have been identified as sewage sludge, swamps and human flatus. In the early nineteenth century phosphine (which is spontaneously inflammable) was also known from cemeteries where it sometimes burned with blue flames. Ozone, the first atmospheric trace species, was discovered by Schönbein while conducting electrolysis experiments with water in 1841 (he never identified the constitution of ozone).
