Photodegredation of N-Containing Organic Compounds in Aerosol


Research funded by CPO’s AC4 program made the cover of the December issue of Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics.  
The paper, “Effect of viscosity on photodegradation rates in complex secondary organic aerosol materials,” deals with photodegradation of N-containing organic compounds in aerosol.  The researchers found that particle viscosity may be an important factor in controlling this process.
The type of molecules affected by this are precisely the molecules found in biomass burning organic aerosols. The scientists said they would probably try similar experiments with biomass burning samples next.
