Abstract Semi-volatile compounds distribute mass between gas and particle phases in air. Gas–particle partition coefficients [ K p =( F /TSP)/ A ] are used to predict the fate and transport of these compounds in the atmosphere. Measurements of gas–particle partition coefficients are biased if: (1) a fraction of mass is not quantified due to mass penetration through the sampler or reactions of collected species during sampling, (2) a fraction of particle-phase mass is measured erroneously as gas… CONTINUE READING
