Organic compounds containing a variety of functional groups have been analyzed using aerosol time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Both positive and negative laser desorption/ionization mass spectra have been acquired for compounds of relevance to ambient air particulate matter, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heterocyclic analogues, aromatic oxygenated compounds such as phenols and acids, aliphatic dicarboxylic acids, and reduced nitrogen species such as amines. In many cases, positive… CONTINUE READING
