Short summary
NOx is formed under high-temperature conditions such as combustion. When NOx enters the atmosphere, it alters the chemistry of organic emissions and can form organonitrates. Depending on the conditions, NOx may increase or decrease resulting aerosol concentrations. We expanded the two-dimensional volatility basis set (2D-VBS) to model organonitrates and the effect on aerosol concentrations. We discuss the mathematical framework of the model and include the code in the Supplement.
