Short summary
Understanding the composition, temporal variability and source apportionment of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is necessary for determining effective control measures to minimize VOCs and their related photochemical pollution. This study conducted source apportionments of VOCs and evaluated their contributions to ozone formation at an urban site in Nanjing with data from 1-year of field measurements.
