  • Chemical loss of volatile organic compounds and its impact on the source analysis through a two-year continuous measurement

    Chemical loss of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is more important than the observed VOCs, which is the real actor of the chemical process in the atmosphere. The chemical loss of VOCs might impact on the identification of VOCs sources in ambient. For this reason, VOCs with 56 species were continuously measured in the urban area of Shanghai from 2009 to 2010, and based on the measurement the ...
