Receptor models have been successfully used for the source apportionment of particulate matter. Based on this past success, an extension of the models to other pollutants, such as organic toxic substances, is desirable and may be possible. However, much additional work must be performed to account for the reactivities of many of the organic substances. Until the reactivities of the organic substances are considered in the receptor models, source apportionment of the reactive organic substances by existing receptor models is not practicable. This project examined this extension of the receptor models and collected data on the emission sources of potentially toxic substances.
