Aerosol presence reduces the diurnal temperature range: an interval when the COVID-19 pandemic reduced aerosols revealing the effect on climate
DTRs from February to June during the COVID-19 pandemic are greater than 3 standard deviations above the climatological mean DTR.
Chemical transformation of a long-chain alkyl organosulfate via heterogeneous OH oxidation: a case study of sodium dodecyl sulfate
Sodium dodecyl sulfate undergoes heterogeneous oxidation by hydroxyl radicals, and its reactivity is enhanced when ammonium ions are present in aerosols.
Microwave catalytic activities of MFe2O4@CMT (M = Ni, Co) supported catalysts for the degradation of dimethyl phthalate
Microwave catalytic activity of MFe2O4@CMT (M = Ni, Co) supported catalysts for the degradation of dimethyl phthalate follows ·OH-oxidation and direct oxidation.
Ultra-fast 137Cs sequestration via a layered inorganic indium thioantimonate
The ultra-fast and selective elimination of 137Cs from complex aqueous solutions is achieved through the ion exchange method by employing layered K2In2Sb2S7·2.2H2O obtained from cation activation of [(CH3)2NH2]2In2Sb2S7.
Assessment of the combined radiative effects of black carbon in the atmosphere and snowpack in the Northern Hemisphere constrained by surface observations
In this study, the total radiative effect of black carbon (BC) in both the atmosphere and seasonal snowpack across the snow-covered area has been investigated over the Northern Hemisphere.
A flexible copper sulfide composite membrane with tunable plasmonic resonance absorption for near-infrared light-driven seawater desalination
A flexible CuS/Matrimid composite membrane with tunable near-infrared absorption is constructed. The composite membrane exhibits good near-infrared light-driven photothermal vapor evaporation and seawater desalination effects.
Matrix effects on the performance and mechanism of Hg removal from groundwater by MoS2 nanosheets
Matrix effects of groundwater have profound implications on the removal mechanism and efficiency of Hg by two-dimensional MoS2 nanosheets.
A multi-pronged approach to strengthen diesel vehicle emission monitoring
China is constructing an vehicle emission monitoring system, aimed at combining remote OBD, periodic inspections, remote sensing and roadside checks. In this study, the exhaust emissions from diesel vehicles were investigated and analysed.
Enhanced adsorption performance for aromatic sulfur compounds over a hierarchical structured AgX zeolite
Schematic illustration of the design for the synthesis of hierarchical-AgX. (a) Sequential acid–alkali treatments of NaX; (b) silver supported on original NaX; (c) silver supported on hierarchical NaX after sequential acid–alkali treatments.
AgI–KI aerosol catalysts with excellent combustion and nucleation performance for weather modification
By employing AgI-based aerosols, the nucleation efficiency of ice was enhanced, resulting in a greatly decreased icing mass formed on transmission lines.
Size-resolved characterization of organic aerosol in the North China Plain: new insights from high resolution spectral analysis
Size-resolved organic aerosol (OA) analysis elucidated largely different size distributions of primary and secondary OA, and oxidation states between urban and rural sites in different seasons.
