Catalytic strippers can be used to determine the solid and semi-volatile particle concentrations in ambient air, in urban and rural environments. This can help in source apportionment – determining the source of emissions. Catalytic strippers can also be used at high altitude to determine the volatility characteristics of aircraft plumes. Measurement of solid and semi-volatile particle concentrations on-road and nearby roads can give an indication of particle aging due to growth by the uptake of semi-volatile material.
