Themed collection Environmental Science: Atmospheres – Introducing our new Advisory Board Members
Entangled iodine and hydrogen peroxide formation in ice
Simultaneous formations of H2O2 and iodine with and without sunlight in acidic icy water.
Fates and spatial variations of accumulation mode particles in a multi-zone indoor environment during the HOMEChem campaign
We report on significant spatial gradients of accumulation mode particles emitted during the HOMEChem campaign and assess particle loss pathways.
Insights into air pollution chemistry and sulphate formation from nitrous acid (HONO) measurements during haze events in Beijing
We integrate observations of gas phase species and time-resolved aerosol composition to explore observational constraints on the mechanisms responsible for sulphate growth during the onset of haze events in Beijing.
Comprehensive organic emission profiles, secondary organic aerosol production potential, and OH reactivity of domestic fuel combustion in Delhi, India
This study examines the volatility distribution of organic emissions from solid fuel combustion sources from Delhi, India, and examines the chemical drivers of the OH reactivity and the secondary organic aerosol production potential.
Quenching of ketone triplet excited states by atmospheric halides
The photosensitized chemistry of three aromatic ketones (xanthone, flavone, and acetophenone) and also of secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) arising from the photo-oxidation of naphthalene was investigated by means of transient absorption spectroscopy.
Integrated experimental and theoretical approach to probe the synergistic effect of ammonia in methanesulfonic acid reactions with small alkylamines
Particle formation from methanesulfonic acid–amine multicomponent systems is investigated using a combined experimental and theoretical approach.
Evidence for a kinetically controlled burying mechanism for growth of high viscosity secondary organic aerosol
The incorporation of organic nitrates into viscous secondary organic aerosol during particle formation is enhanced relative to expected equilibrium partitioning, and is best described by a kinetically controlled “burying” mechanism.
Overview of HOMEChem: House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry
The House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry (HOMEChem) study was a large-scale collaborative experimental investigation probing indoor air composition and chemistry.
Total surface area in indoor environments
Objects in a room add 50% to its surface area beyond the walls, ceiling, and floor.
Highly time resolved chemical characterization of submicron organic aerosols at a polluted urban location
Real time concentrations of non-refractory submicron (NR-PM1) aerosols and Black Carbon (BC) were measured during the late winter period (February–March) in a polluted urban location (Kanpur) of India.
Synergistic formation of sulfate and ammonium resulting from reaction between SO2 and NH3 on typical mineral dust
A synergistic effect between SO2 and NH3 on typical mineral dust.
Toxicity of particulate matter from incineration of nanowaste
This study assesses the oxidative potential, cytotoxicity, and genotoxicity of particulate matter produced from the incineration of a variety of nanomaterials in waste.
