Short summary
The present study provides the first measurement for the uptake coefficient of gaseous peroxide compounds including peroxyacetic acid and hydrogen peroxide on the ambient particles (PM2.5 and Asian Storm Dust) over a wide range of relative humidity. The measured uptake coefficient values suggest that the heterogeneous reaction on the ambient particles plays an important role in the atmospheric budgets of peroxide compounds and potentially affects the components of aerosols in the atmosphere.
