Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


An Urban photochemistry study was conducted in the metropolitan region of Santiago de Chile to find out the impact of hydrocarbons on the formation of secondary compounds. It was observed that based on the propene equivalent certain temporal sequences in terms of photochemical impacts of the different non methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) fractions prevail. It was suggested that alkanes do not contribute more than 20% to the total air mass reactivity. The results also indicates a significant contribution of anthropogenic hydrocarbons to secondary organic aerosols (SOA).
