Short summary
Understanding the impact of black carbon (BC) particles on human health and radiative forcing requires knowledge of the BC mixing state. This work investigates the mixing state of BC and other aerosol species in a typical urban area using a single particle mass spectrometry technique. Our results provide quantitative insight into the physical and chemical nature of BC-containing particles near emission and can be used as a basis for our developing understanding of BC evolution in the atmosphere.
