Limited formation of isoprene epoxydiols-derived secondary organic aerosol under NOx-rich environments in Eastern China

Abstract : Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) derived from isoprene epoxydiols (IEPOX) has potential impacts on regional air quality and climate yet is poorly characterized under NOx-rich ambient environments. We report the first real-time characterization of IEPOX-derived SOA (IEPOX-SOA) in Eastern China in summer 2013 using comprehensive ambient measurements, along with model analysis. The ratio of IEPOX-SOA to isoprene high-NOx SOA precursors, e. g., methyl vinyl ketone and methacrolein, and the reactive uptake potential of IEPOX was lower than those generally observed in regions with prevailing biogenic emissions, low NOx levels, and high particle acidity, elucidating the suppression of IEPOX-SOA formation under NOx-rich environments. IEPOX-SOA showed high potential source regions to the south with large biogenic emissions, illustrating that the interactions between biogenic and anthropogenic emissions might have played an important role in affecting the formation of IEPOX-SOA in polluted environments in Eastern China.
