Short summary
Jet engine aircraft are significant sources of atmospheric nanoparticles. Using size-resolved particulate samples collected near a runway of the Narita International Airport, Japan, we clearly demonstrate for the first time that organic compounds in aircraft exhaust nanoparticles (diameter: < 30 nm) were dominated by nearly intact forms of jet engine lubrication oil. This finding has an implication for their environmental impacts near airports and in the upper troposphere.
Jet engine aircraft are significant sources of atmospheric nanoparticles. Using size-resolved...
