Short summary
This study demonstrate the detection of dimethylamine at low mixing ratios by nitrate chemical ionization mass spectrometry (CIMS). Due to simultaneously high-sensitive gas-phase measurements of DMA, sulfuric acid, and extremely low volatile organic compounds (ELVOCs), this technique can be used as a versatile tool for studying new particle formation in the atmosphere.
