The role of oxidized organic compounds in the process of new particle formation in the atmosphere is poorly known. Here we used the ultraclean and most sophisticated CLOUD chamber to investigate systematically particle formation in the presence of sulfuric acid and oxidized organics. We varied independently the concentrations of both of these components. In… CONTINUE READING
