Short summary
We did a comprehensive work on understanding the composition and structural information of N-containing aromatic compounds (NACs) and their contributions to organic matter and bulk extract absorption of biomass burning (BB) aerosols. Some NACs with methoxy and cyanate groups specific to the BB were identified. The general implication is that the formation of NACs during BB might depend largely on burn conditions and is less impacted by fuel types and/or ambient conditions.
