Tobacco smoking is well-known as a significant source of primary indoor air pollutants. However, only recently has thirdhand smoke (THS) been recognized as a contributor to indoor pollution due to the role of indoor surfaces. Here, the effects of relative humidity (<10% RH and ∼ 45% RH) and substrate (cellulose, cotton, and paper) on secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation from nicotine-ozone-NO(x) reactions are discussed. SOA formation from the sorbed nicotine-ozone reaction ([O(3)] = 55 ppb… Expand
Gas Phase Oxidation of Nicotine by OH Radicals: Kinetics, Mechanisms, and Formation of HNCO
Cigarette smoke is recognized as having harmful health effects for the smoker and for people breathing second-hand smoke. In an atmospheric chemistry context, however, little is known about the fateExpand
A Review of Household Products Induced Secondary Organic Aerosols Formation in Indoor Environment
This paper reviews the process of formation of secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) in the indoor environment. SOAs have been found to have more alarming health effects on humans and environment. To beExpand
Tobacco smoke aging in the presence of ozone: a room sized chamber study
a b s t r a c t Exposure to tobacco pollutants that linger indoors after smoking has taken place ( thirdhand smoke , THS ) can occur over extended periods and is modulated by chemical processesExpand
Thirdhand cigarette smoke in an experimental chamber: evidence of surface deposition of nicotine, nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and de novo formation of NNK
TLDR
The data suggest that the majority of the PAHs, nicotine, cotinine and tobacco-specific nitrosamines that are released during smoking in homes and public places deposit on room surfaces, giving an estimate of the potential for accumulation of carcinogens in thirdhand cigarette smoke. Expand
Sources of isocyanic acid (HNCO) indoors: a focus on cigarette smoke.
TLDR
It is inferred that gas-to-surface partitioning of HNCO acts as an indoor loss pathway and the indoor HNCOs mixing ratios in the Toronto residence were elevated compared to concurrent outdoor measurements by approximately a factor of two. Expand
Recent Advances in Indoor Chemistry
Just as the chemistry creates urban smog and aerosols that influence climate change, chemistry in building air can alter the indoor environment for better or worse. This review focuses on chemicalExpand
Evaluation of nicotine and tobacco specific nitrosamines in Minnesota house dust
TLDR
The results suggest cigarette smoke is a source of TSNA and nicotine is a reliable predictor for TSNA in THS contaminated house dust, and strong evidence of the persistence of tobacco smoke in indoor environments is provided. Expand
Fibers susceptibility to contamination by environmental tobacco smoke markers
Textiles are characterized by a diversified and relatively high susceptibility to sorption of volatile substances and may influence indoor air quality. The aim of this study was investigation theExpand
Active and passive smoking – New insights on the molecular composition of different cigarette smoke aerosols by LDI–FTICRMS
Abstract The aerosol generated when a cigarette is smoked is a significant indoor contaminant. Both smokers and non-smokers can be exposed to this class of pollutants. Nevertheless, they are notExpand
Predicting the evolution of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) size distributions due to limonene ozonolysis in indoor environments
Abstract Aerosol diameter is important in determining its fate and transport. Indoors, the ozonolysis of terpenoids, such as limonene, yields secondary organic aerosol (SOA), which can range ordersExpand

Effect of ozone on nicotine desorption from model surfaces: evidence for heterogeneous chemistry.
TLDR
Results show that surface oxidation was competitive with desorption, and oxidative losses could significantly reduce long-term re-emissions of nicotine from indoor surfaces, and are consistent with complete inhibition of ozone-nicotine surface reactions in an aqueous surface film present in cotton but not in Teflon surfaces. Expand
Sorption, desorption, and surface oxidative fate of nicotine.
TLDR
Knowing the indoor fate of condensed and gas phase nicotine and its oxidation products will provide a better understanding of nicotine's impact on personal exposures as well as overall indoor air quality. Expand
Formation of carcinogens indoors by surface-mediated reactions of nicotine with nitrous acid, leading to potential thirdhand smoke hazards
TLDR
It is shown that residual nicotine from tobacco smoke sorbed to indoor surfaces reacts with ambient nitrous acid (HONO) to form carcinogenic tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs), which represents an unappreciated health hazard through dermal exposure, dust inhalation, and ingestion. Expand

TLDR
Exposure-relevant emission factors (EREFs), which include the effects of sorption and re-emission over a 24-h period, were calculated by mass balance from measured compound concentrations and chamber ventilation rates in a 50-m3 room constructed and furnished with typical materials. Expand

Secondary Organic Aerosol Formation from Limonene Ozonolysis: Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Influences as a Function of NOx
Limonene has a high emission rate both from biogenic sources and from household solvents. Here we examine the limonene + ozone reaction as a source for secondary organic aerosol (SOA). Our data showExpand
Secondary organic aerosol production from terpene ozonolysis. 2. Effect of NOx concentration.
TLDR
Yield reduction is a result of the formation of a more volatile product distribution as [VOC]0/[NOx]0 decreases; it is proposed that the change in the product distribution is driven by changes in the gas-phase chemistry as NOx concentration increases. Expand
