Carbon oxidation state as a metric for describing the chemistry of atmospheric organic aerosol.

Abstract

A detailed understanding of the sources, transformations and fates of organic species in the environment is crucial because of the central roles that they play in human health, biogeochemical cycles and the Earth's climate. However, such an understanding is hindered by the immense chemical complexity of environmental mixtures of organics; for example… (More)
