Secondary Organic Aerosols (SOA), produced by the transformation of organic gases in the atmosphere, have received a considerable amount of attention over the last three decades because of their expected roles in urban pollution, global aerosol loadings, and cloud formation. While most investigations have been performed under controlled conditions such as smog chambers, atmospheric observations of SOA are sparse, mostly indirect, and critically limit the knowledge of these aerosols. In particular, techniques for the specific observation of the secondary organic fraction of aerosols in the atmosphere need to be developed, and seem today the most likely pathways to make significant progress in this topic.
