The invisible menace: NO2 in the air we breathe

Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is one of the nitrogen oxide pollutants produced by combustion processes. The presence of NO2 in urban air is mainly due to traffic. The proportion of NO2 in vehicle exhaust is considerably higher in diesel vehicles because their exhaust after‑treatment systems increase the oxidation of NO, leading to higher NO2 emissions.
