HCl becomes easily volatile and its Cl- is easy to form complex ion with metal ion; SO42- in H2SO4 is easy to form insoluble salts with metal ion; HN[O.sub.3] is oxidizing acid and easy to oxidize organic complexes when its concentrations are high and unfavorable for complex reaction between metal ions and carrier in an oxidizing environment.
Standard method for measurement of NO3-, SO42-, Cl-, NH4+, Na+, K+, Mg2+, Ca2+ in PM2,5 as deposited on filters.
The determination of nitrogen, sulphur and chlorine are in accordance with the following standards: EPA 5050 and 4500 NO3 E; EPA 5050 and 4500 SO42- E; EPA 5050 and 4500 Cl G (Agencia de Protecao Ambiental [EPA], 2014), respectively.
The obvious reason for this increase is the availability of high concentration of cations such as Ca2+, Mg2+, K+, Na+ and anions SO42-, Cl-, HCO3-, which are responsible for carrying electrical charges and therefore conduct electrical current (Garcia and Charbaji, 1993).
