Contribution of nitrated phenols to wood burning brown carbon light absorption in Detling, United Kingdom during winter time.
We show for the first time quantitative online measurements of five nitrated phenol (NP) compounds in ambient air (nitrophenol C6H5NO3, methylnitrophenol C7H7NO3, nitrocatechol C6H5NO4,Expand
Quantification of Aircraft Engine Hydrocarbon Emissions Using Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry
A proton transfer reaction mass spectrometer was used to measure the concentrations of selected volatile organic compounds in the exhaust of a commercial turbofan aircraft engine. Nine differentExpand
Vehicle fleet emissions of black carbon, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and other pollutants measured by a mobile laboratory in Mexico City
Abstract. Black carbon (BC) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are of concern due to their effects on climate and health. The main goal of this research is to provide the first estimate ofExpand
Simulation of semi-explicit mechanisms of SOA formation from glyoxal in aerosol in a 3-D model
Abstract. New pathways to form secondary organic aerosol (SOA) have been postulated recently. Glyoxal, the smallest dicarbonyl, is one of the proposed precursors. It has both anthropogenic andExpand
On-road measurements of volatile organic compounds in the Mexico City metropolitan area using proton transfer reaction mass spectrometry
Abstract A proton transfer reaction mass spectrometer (PTR-MS) was redesigned and deployed to monitor selected hydrocarbon emissions from in-use vehicles as part of the Mexico City Metropolitan AreaExpand
Characterization of on-road vehicle emissions in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area using a mobile laboratory in chase and fleet average measurement modes during the MCMA-2003 field campaign
A mobile laboratory was used to measure on- road vehicle emission ratios during the MCMA-2003 field campaign held during the spring of 2003 in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA). The measuredExpand
Characterization of submicron particles influenced by mixed biogenic and anthropogenic emissions using high-resolution aerosol mass spectrometry: results from CARES
An Aerodyne high resolution time-of-flight aerosol mass spectrometer (HR-ToF-AMS) was deployed during the Carbonaceous Aerosols and Radiative Effects Study (CARES) that took place in northernExpand
Alternative Aviation Fuel Experiment (AAFEX)
The rising cost of oil coupled with the need to reduce pollution and dependence on foreign suppliers has spurred great interest and activity in developing alternative aviation fuels. Although aExpand
HCN detection with a proton transfer reaction mass spectrometer
Abstract Proton transfer reaction mass spectrometry (PTR-MS) is a promising technique for making rapid, sensitive measurements of HCN in the atmosphere. However, because the proton affinity of HCN isExpand
