Abstract

A working group of investigators, who are characterizing and quantifying the organic compounds in particulate matter (PM) as part of the US EPA s PM 2.5 research program and related studies, was established to advance the quality and comparability of data on the organic composition of PM. This group has completed two interlaboratory comparison studies. The first study used a subset of SRM 1649a (Urban Dust, sieved to
