Short summary
Atmospheric furan is a primary and secondary pollutant in the atmosphere, and its emission contributes to the formation of ultrafine particles and ground-level ozone. The present study demonstrates the effect of NOx and humidity on secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation during the furan–NOx–NaCl photooxidation. Furthermore, the results illustrate the importance of studying SOA formation over a comprehensive range of environmental conditions.
