Short summary
Organic nitrates are important atmospheric species, as their fate could affect nitrogen cycle, ozone production, and secondary organic aerosols; few related studies focus on the regions with high anthropogenic pollution. In this study, we find that organic nitrates contribute a notable fraction of organic aerosol during warm seasons, and nighttime particulate organic nitrate formation is highly relevant not only to biogenic VOCs but also to anthropogenic VOCs for urban air pollution in China.
