New Analytical Method Probes Harmful Organic Aerosols
Organic aerosols, a form of air pollution, can harm people's lungs, cause haze, and change climate. Now researchers have applied a new mass spectroscopy method to chemically analyze these airborne particles more rapidly than previous methods (Anal. Chem., DOI 10.1021/ac101028j).
Chemicals from pollution such as truck exhaust or from natural sources such as trees can react in the air to . . .
