Short summary
Aerosols from the low-intensity smoldering combustion of nine types of wood were generated in a controlled laboratory environment and subjected to chemical, physical, and biological and toxicological analysis. These smoldering woodsmoke aerosols have significant biological activity that is comparable to other combustion-derived sources. We describe the molecular composition of the woodsmoke aerosols and find links between specific compounds and aerosol optical–biological properties.
