Introduction

Aerosol formation in the atmosphere has been of interest to a number of investigators over the past several years. The ever-increasing amount of pollutants entering the atmosphere from sources such as Industrial complexes, larger power plants, automobiles, etc., has resulted in a noticeable increase In aerosol formation in the atmosphere.

Realizing that automobile exhaust gases can contribute significantly to the air pollution problem, The American Petroleum Institute has initiated a study on the reactivity of auto exhaust products and gasoline evaporative emissions relative to aerosol formation in photochemical smog processes. As pert of this study a survey of the literature has been made in en effort to determine the present state-of-the-art knowledge concerning aerosol formation from the hydrocarbons found in gasoline and the various components of auto-exhaust. The survey included a review of the APCA abstracts and various air pollution Journals, and covers the period from 195T to the present. Significant papers are reviewed In the following sections.
