Abstract

The results obtain from the chemical mass balance (CMB) receptor model application for non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) are compared with the Mexico City emission inventory. The model is used to determine the specific source contributions of NMHC to their total concentration measured in ambient air. Samples of ambient air were collected during Mach 1996 in three different sites of Mexico City with different land use such as industrial, residential, and commercial. Samples of different sources (light duty vehicl
