Short summary
We investigated the formation of atmospheric pollutants from chlorine-initiated oxidation of isoprene. Our study is the first to report formation of airborne particles from these reactions. We analyzed the chemical composition of both gas- and particle-phase products and propose methods to better detect particle-phase pollutants. Overall, our study demonstrates that reactions between isoprene and chlorine can have important implications for atmospheric composition and therefore human health.
