Short summary
We present a set of tools for mapping molecular information to functional group composition. This allows us to reduce the complexity of representing the organic aerosol composition, as it consists of hundreds of thousands of different compounds. We describe the tools and methods for validation, and demonstrate several applications in which this tool can facilitate measurement intercomparisons and chemical modeling of aerosol chemistry.
