Although camp®res are typically enjoyable events, people are exposed to high concentrations of gaseous and particulate pollutants. The combustion conditions of wood burned in camp®res are di€erent from those of indoor wood burning in stoves or ®replaces. Typically, wood logs, twigs, and branches with their leaves or needles are burned in camp®res, whereas mostly wood logs are burned in indoor settings. Consequently, the molecular source pro®les for organic particulate matter emissions may be di…

Co-pyrolysis of paper waste and mustard press cake in a semi-batch pyrolyzer—optimization and bio-oil characterization
ABSTRACT Under the present research study, the co-pyrolysis of paper waste and mustard press cake was conducted in a 50 mm diameter and 640 mm long semi-batch pyrolyzer in the temperature range of


Retene—a molecular marker of wood combustion in ambient air
The use of wood as a fuel has increased since the oil embargo in 1973. Several studies have shown that wood combustion may make a significant contribution to air pollution. Using 14C as a tracer for
Preliminary correlation of organic molecular tracers in residential wood smoke with the source of fuel
Abstract Polar cyclic di- and triterpenoids were analyzed in the extracts of residential wood combustion aerosols collected in suburban sections of Eugene, Oakridge and Corvallis, Oregon. Additional
Lignin pyrolysis products, lignans, and resin acids as specific tracers of plant classes in emissions from biomass combustion
Biomass smoke aerosols contain thermally unaltered and partially altered biomarker compounds from major vegetation taxa. These compounds range from C_8 to C_(31) and include phytosterols, lignans,
Identification of methoxylated phenols as candidate tracers for atmospheric wood smoke pollution.
Samples collected onto filters backed up by polyurethane foam (PUF) plus in the cooled smoke plume showed that some of the methoxylated phenols were primarily in the vapor phase, while the majority were associated with the particulates.
Characterization of extractable plant wax, resin, and thermally matured components in smoke particles from prescribed burns
Atmospheric particles from two slash burns in the Oregon Coast Range were solvent-extracted, and this higher molecular weight organic matter was analyzed by capillary gas chromatography and capillary
