A new instrument has been developed for measuring sulfuric acid aerosols. The instrument is called an Aerosol Mobility Chromatograph since it is based on the electrical mobility of aerosol particles and operates in a way similar to that of the conventional liquid or gas Chromatograph. The particle diameter range of the instrument is from 0.005 to 0.2 μm and the sensitivity (for detecting monodisperse sulfuric acid aerosols), from 0.01 to 10-5μm-3, depending upon the specific particle detector used. This paper describes the operating principle of the AMC and the performance characteristics of a prototype device developed at the Particle Technology Laboratory, University of Minnesota.
