Short summary
Anthropogenic volatile organic compounds often dominate the urban atmosphere and consist to a large degree of aromatics. These compounds are already known as important precursors for the formation of secondary organic aerosol. This study shows how the oxidation of aromatics with an OH radical leads to subsequent autoxidation chain reactions forming highly oxygenated molecules. We hypothesize that these may contribute substantially to new particle formation events detected in urban areas.
