Short summary
The rate constant and SOA formation for the OH-initiated reaction of eugenol were studied for the first time in an oxidation flow reactor. Significant SOA formation was observed, and SOA yield depended on precursor concentration and OH exposure. SO2 and NO2 both enhanced SOA yields. In addition, NO2 participated in OH-initiated reaction and produced organic nitrates. The results could be helpful for further understanding SOA formation from the atmospheric oxidation of methoxyphenols.
