Description

Combustion of a forest fuel complex produces a diverse mixture of oxygenated and unsaturated hydrocarbon compounds mixed with aerosols. This study examines the production rates for a number of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) precursor compounds produced from the controlled combustion of alpha pinene. In addition, emission factors for particulate matter (EFp) are evaluated and mechanisms of particle formation discussed.
