Title: Influence of humidity and iron( iii ) on photodegradation of atmospheric secondary organic aerosol particles

Abstract

The absorption of solar actinic radiation by atmospheric secondary organic aerosol (SOA) particles drives condensed-phase photochemical processes, which lead to particle mass loss by the production of CO, CO 2 , hydrocarbons, and various oxygenated volatile organic compounds (OVOCs).
