Abstract

The paper reports on a study to determine the composition of the ionic species sulfate as a function of the aerosol size particulate, since the sulfates are found greatly in the submicrometric aerosol particles, and to determine the concentration of heavy metals as a function of the aerosol size-particulate to specify which of them are found in the respirable fraction causing adverse health effects. Particle fractions collected show high amounts of sulfates and heavy metals, particularly in the particle fractions lower than 2 mu .
