This dataset contains chemical composition measurements of PM2.5 particles made at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics land station (IAP), Beijing site during the winter APHH-Beijing campaign for the Atmospheric Pollution & Human Health in a Chinese Megacity (APHH) programme.

Daily fine particles were collected on the PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) filters using the Partisol samplers. The filters were then analysed for metals using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), and for ion species using Ion Chromatography. Quartz filters were collected by Tisch high vol, samplers and then were analysed for organic and elemental carbons using the DRI Model 2015 Multiwavelength Thermal/Optical Carbon Analyser, and organic tracers using Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
