The formation, properties and impact of secondary organic aerosol: current and emerging issues
Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) accounts for a significant fraction of ambient tropospheric aerosol and a detailed knowledge of the formation, properties and transformation of SOA is therefore…

Investigating the formation of extremely low volatility organic compounds (ELVOC) from O3 and OH radical oxidation of several monoterpenes and isoprene in a series of laboratory experiments shows that biogenic SOA formation in general, and ELVOC in particular, play crucial roles in atmospheric CCN production.

Several nitroxy-organosulfates originating from monoterpenes were found in the ambient samples, suggesting a role for nighttime chemistry in their formation, and their LC/MS chromatographic peak intensities suggest that they represent an important fraction of the organic mass in ambient aerosols, especially at night.
Source characterization of biomass burning particles: The combustion of selected European conifers, African hardwood, savanna grass, and German and Indonesian peat
 We carried out a detailed size-resolved chemical characterization of particle emissions from the combustion of European conifer species, savanna grass, African hardwood, and German and Indonesian…
