Short summary
This work describes experiments to constrain the production of secondary organic aerosol from pinanediol, a semi-volatile oxidation product of α-pinene. Our results and the implications for SOA aging are directly relevant to the atmospheric chemistry community because they connect new-particle formation experiments and SOA formation experiments. The oxidation conditions are typically different and experiments are also influenced in different ways by wall losses of condensible vapors.
