Short summary
Master Chemical Mechanism (MCM) coupled to peroxy radical autoxidation mechanism (PRAM) was used to simulate secondary organic aerosol mass loadings from oxidation of five selected biogenic volatile organic compounds. The simulations were designed to replicate idealized chamber and oxidative flow-tube setups. The mass yields using MCM + PRAM are in good agreement with the experimental yields, thereby allowing us to highlight a few important compounds which contribute to > 95 % of mass loadings.
