abstract
The sampling artifacts for C(2)-C(5) dicarboxylic acids (DCAs) were studied by collecting high-volume PM(2.5) samples using front and back quartz-fibre filters. The filters were analysed for carbonaceous components, and for inorganic cationic and anionic and organic anionic species. Back/front filter ratios were determined for the C(2)-C(5) DCAs, but also for methanesulphonate (MSA(-)), the various inorganic species, and the carbonaceous components. The sampling artifacts for the inorganic species were small (< 5%) with the exception of those for nitrate. The median back/front filter ratios for MSA(-) and the C(2)-C(5)DCAs increased in the following order: oxalate (1.5%)-succinate (3%)-MSA(-) (4%)-malonate (2%-9%)-glutarate (7%-26%). Most of these ratios are smaller than those that were obtained for organic carbon, total carbon, and especially water-soluble organic carbon. Our back/front ratios for the C(2)-C(5) DCAs are lower to much lower than those found in other studies.
