Short summary
We demonstrate in laboratory experiments that the formation of IOx anions (formed in reactions of I with O3) or acetate anions (formed e.g. by the reaction of I with peracetic acid) results in unexpected sensitivity of an iodide chemical ionisation mass spectrometer (I-CIMS) to HNO3 at a mass-to-charge ratio of 62. This helps explain observations of apparent high daytime levels of N2O5. Airborne measurements using I-CIMS confirm these conclusions.
