The widely used two-product secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation model has been extended in this study to consider the volatility changes of secondary organic gases (SOG) arising from the aging process as well as the kinetic condensation of low volatile SOG (LV-SOG). In addition to semi-volatile SOG (SV-SOG) with saturation vapor pressure at 290 K ( C 290) in the range of∼3 ppt–3 ppb and medium-volatile SOG (MV-SOG) withC 290 in the range of ∼0.3–300 ppb, we add a third component…
