We study the chemical composition and the dynamic evolution of air pollutants such as particulate matter (PM), ozone (O3) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Specifically, we measure the chemical composition of complex mixtures in PM and VOCs, which is vital for us to understand their emission sources or the chemical process leading to their formation; we also simulate the chemical reactions (e.g., aqueous-phase photolysis or gas-phase oxidation) occurring in the atmosphere, and find out the key precursors and conditions that lead to the deteriorating secondary pollution formation.
We are particularly interested in the urban air pollution that is affected by anthropogenic emissions. At the same time, we are also interested in how the anthropogenic air pollutants evolve under the influence of air masses of marine origin (with high relative humidity and high halogen content) and emissions from forested areas (e.g., biogenic VOCs).
