Short summary
The fate of organic nitrates influences their role as sinks and sources of NOx and their effects on the formation of tropospheric ozone and organic aerosol. Organic nitrates were formed from the photo-oxidation of α-pinene in environmental chamber experiments. Results on partitioning and hydrolysis of organic nitrates from this work could be implemented in chemical transport models to more accurately represent the fate of NOx and the formation of ozone and particulate matter.
