Short summary
We formalize a method for classifying carbon atoms in organic aerosols according to their functionalization. This conceptual approach allows estimation of carbon mass from functional group measurements, which previously required a series of assumptions that were not well constrained. We describe how the proposed strategy can lead to better comparisons among functional group measurements, chemically explicit model simulations, and other measurements.
