Short summary
This study comprehensively investigates the molecular structure impact on SOA formation during the photooxidation of aromatic hydrocarbons under low-NOx conditions by simultaneously analyzing SOA yield, chemical composition and physical properties. The result suggests that the substitute location, carbon chain length and branching structure exert greater impact on SOA formation than the substitute number. This study improve the understanding of SOA formation from anthropogenic sources.
