In work, the composition of alkanes of a linear structure in tests of the atmospheric aerosols, which are selected from a board of the Tu-134 Optic airborne-laboratory in the free atmosphere (500–8500 m) and in the ground layer of air (2 m) near JR-STATION project towers is investigated. It is shown that a homological number of n-alkanes of aerosol tests which are selected from a plane laboratory board, make compounds of 12–28 atoms of carbon, and tests, which are selected in the ground layer – compounds of 14–30 atoms of carbon in a molecule.
