Abstract: Exhaled air contains non-volatile particulate material from the respiratory tract. The precise location in which exhaled particles are formed is unknown, and details on their chemical content are scarce. The aim of this work was to chemically characterize and to study the mechanisms of formation of endogenous particles in exhaled air. A new instrument for counting and sampling particles in exhaled air by impaction was developed, as a part of this thesis, at the Department of Public Health and C... more
