Evidence is provided that the green leaf volatile 3-Z-hexenal serves as a precursor for biogenic secondary organic aerosol through the formation of polar organosulfates (OSs) with molecular weight (MW) 226. The MW 226 C6-OSs were chemically elucidated, along with structurally similar MW 212 C5-OSs, whose biogenic precursor is likely related to 3-Z-hexenal but still remains unknown. The MW 226 and 212 OSs have a substantial abundance in ambient fine aerosol from K-puszta, Hungary, which is… CONTINUE READING
