Short summary
The effect of SO2 at atmospheric levels on SOA formation and its oxidation state during 2-methoxyphenol photooxidation was investigated with various inorganic seed particles. The presence of SO2 increased SOA yield and oxidation state, suggesting that the functionalization reaction should be more dominant than the oligomerization reaction. SO2 and seed particles were found to have a synergetic contribution to SOA formation. The results demonstrate the important role of SO2 in SOA formation.
