Abstract

Experiments were conducted to study secondary aerosol formation by chemical reactions involving organics, oxides of nitrogen, and ammonia. The organics that were studied included 0-crespl, 1-heptene, 1-butene, and dimethyl sulfide. Aerosol size distribution data were analyzed with the growth law technique. It is concluded that aerosol formation is due to gas phase chemical reactions, and that the data are qualitatively consistent with condensational growth provided that the effect of particle curvature on vapor pressure is accounted for.
