Short summary
The atmospheric oxidation of aromatic compounds is an important source of aerosol-forming species, and thus contributes to pollution in urban areas. However, details of the mechanisms by which oxidation occurs are only recently being elucidated. Here we report the incorporation of a newly developed mechanism for aromatic oxidation into the UCI-CIT regional air quality model. Results suggest an unexpected role for chemical pathways typically associated with cleaner environments.
