Summary of "Influence of Particle Surface Area Concentration on the Production of Organic Particulate Matter in a Continuously Mixed Flow Reactor."

Organic particulate matter (PM) was produced at different particle surface area concentrations S in a continuously mixed flow reactor (CMFR). The apparent PM yield from the dark ozonolysis of α-pinene increased from 24.5 ± 0.7% to 57.1 ± 0.6% for an increase in S from 0.55 to 2.87 × 10 µm•surface cm•volume. The apparent yield saturated for S > 2.1 × 10 µm cm. There was hysteresis in the apparent yield for experiments of increasing compared to decreasing S. The relative timescales of gas-particle interactions, gas-wall interactions, and thereby particle-wall cross interactions could explain the results. The PM carbon oxidation state and oxygen-to-carbon atomic ratio decreased from -0.19 to -0.47 and 0.62 to 0.51, respectively, for increasing S, suggesting that greater partitioning of semi-volatile organic species into the PM contributed to the increased PM yield. A thorough understanding of the role of gas-wall interactions on apparent PM yield is essential for the extension of laboratory results into predictions of atmospheric PM production, and comparative results from CMFRs and batch reactors can be informative in this regard.

Any substance in the air which could, if present in high enough concentration, harm humans, animals, vegetation or material. Substances include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; and volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.

High molecular weight mucoproteins that form a protective biofilm on the surface of EPITHELIAL CELLS where they provide a barrier to particulate matter and microorganisms. Membrane-anchored mucins may have additional roles concerned with protein interactions at the cell surface.

The presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air (AIR POLLUTANTS) that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects. The substances may include GASES; PARTICULATE MATTER; or volatile ORGANIC CHEMICALS.

Those hepatitis B antigens found on the surface of the Dane particle and on the 20 nm spherical and tubular particles. Several subspecificities of the surface antigen are known. These were formerly called the Australia antigen.

The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
