Semivolatile organic compounds adsorbed on aerosols have attracted considerable attention due to their potential long range transport to areas never exposed to the corresponding substances. Hence, not surprisingly the group of xenobiotic compounds of the so-called persistent organic pollutants (POPs) contains several semivolatile pesticides.
Unfortunately, our general knowledge about the properties of aerosols and the compounds in the aerosol-borne state to quantify the degradation reactions on aerosols is scarce and only a very few investigations are known.
