Abstract. A system of two dynamic plant chambers and a downstream reaction chamber has been set up to investigate the emission of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC) and possible effects from pollutants such as ozone. The system can be used to compare BVOC emissions from two sets of differently treated plants, or to study the photochemistry of real plant emissions under polluted conditions without exposing the plants to pollutants. The main analytical tool is a proton-transfer-reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometer (PTR-TOF-MS) which allows online monitoring of biogenic emissions and chemical degradation products. The identification of BVOCs and their oxidation products is aided by cryogenic trapping and subsequent in situ gas chromatographic analysis. The data presented in the paper demonstrates the good performance of the setup.
