Atmospheric particulate matter is a complex mixture consisting of organic and inorganic chemicals. Their sources include various combustion processes, aerosolized dusts and soils, and chemical reactions which produce secondary aerosols. The partitioning of semivolatile toxic organic compounds (SOCs) between particulate matter and the gas phase is strongly… (More)
