Short summary
This study investigates the effects of biodiesel's chemical composition on the volatility and reactive oxygenate species of fresh and aged diesel particulate matter. Using a potential aerosol mass chamber, changes of volatility and reactive oxygenated species are studied. The study concludes that more saturated and more oxygenated diesel fuels can cause more volatile particles carrying more reactive oxygenated species whether before or after aging.
