The conditions for photochemical generation of aerosol particles were studied using, as an example, photolysis of some aldehydes (acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, and benzaldehyde). Results of laboratory experiments have been confirmed by calculations. Evidences were obtained on the existence of competing mechanisms of aerosol generation depending on the chemical nature of a substance subject to photolysis.
