Short summary
This study provides new insight into the oxidation of polyolefinic monoterpenes and the dependence of the formation and yields of organic nitrates (ON) and secondary organic aerosol (SOA) on hydrocarbon structure. Here we have elucidated the ON, hydroxy nitrate, and SOA yields from the NO3 oxidation of γ-terpinene, a potentially relevant nighttime ON precursor in the Midwestern US. The results advance our understanding of the chemistry that influences NOx, O3 production, and aerosol formation.
