Sampling procedure

PM10 aerosols were collected by means of a medium-volume sampler operating at the flow rate of 39 L min-1, equipped with an electronic volume counter. Each sampling was carried out over 24 hours and the particles were collected onto 47 mm diameter quartz filter membranes. The particle-loaded filters were directly kept in dichloromethane solution to prevent any degradation and stored at low temperature (4°C) until chemical characterization.
