Other impact of clouds or wet aerosols...
Where is this acidiy coming from? Heterogeneous chemistry… How do we describe such processes?
Earth's cloud coverage... This image shows the average global cloud cover during the past month. For example, 50% cloud cover indicates that of all the times the satellite passed over a certain area, it detected clouds half of the time. The cloud cover image was created using data from the Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I). This is one of the instruments on a Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellite.
The water cycle...
Gas Phase Liquid Deflection Uptake Diffusion into bulk Reaction Evaporation
What is water looking like?... Temperature Water vapor pressure (Torr) Vapor Solid Liquid Marine boundary layer Lower stratosphere Lower troposphere Upper troposphere
Molecular structure of liquids... Liquids are more organised (than gases) Solvent will play a very important role! 1 For a gas:
Dissociation of a molecule... Possible energy diagram for the dissociation of a covalent molecule, E-N, into its ions E + and N - In water, ions are not necessarily independent from each other … ion pairing.
Description of gas/liquid equilibrium… In dilute solutions: Henry's law P= H [solute] or [solute] = H*P may apply to the minor constituents P vap pure In ideal solutions: Raoult's law P= x P vap pure may apply to the solvent x (mole fraction) 0 1 P Deviation from both laws Real solutions: solute activity a solute = [solute] is the activity coefficient, dimensionless (different from the uptake coefficient)
A few examples... Gas/Aqueous Phase distribution factor. Fractions of A that exist either in the gas or aqueous phase are: or
Equilibrium fractions for H 2 O 2...
Atmospheric water is not "pure"... Ionic strength changes also the aqueous solubility of gases Using Setchenow expressions: H=H 0 exp(-hI) where h is the Setchenow coefficient H 0 the real solubility For NaCl solutions: h= h Na+ + h Cl-
Upper limit... Uptake Coefficient Kinetic Theory Gas Liquids Accommodation Coefficient Limitation due to the interface Molecular flux across the interface.. Net flux...
Mass transport considerations... Paper(s) by S.E. Schwartz reviewed and described most of the mathematical basis needed to describe uptake kinetics - NATO Series 1986 He stated following sentences –Knudsen (1913): it is not possible a priori to specify –Sherwood (1975) Not only is there no useful theory to employ in predicting, there is no easy way to experimentally measure it prior to the 90s, values were very dispersed...
Challenge 1: understand phase transfer kinetics

Intermolecular forces Interaction of a molecule in a medium From J.N. Israechvili, Intermolecular and surface forces A)Displacement of solvent by two approaching molecules Interaction energies between two solute molecules must not only direct solute-solute interactions but also any changes in the solute-solvent and solvent-solvent interactions B) Solvation Solute molecules often perturb local ordering, producing new interactions between solutes and solvents C) Cavity formation Cavity energy expended by the medium when it forms a cavity to accommodate a guest molecule Gas
Entry of a gas... Gas Liquid in-coming molecule Cavity formation model
Description of the mass accommodation process... From the experiments: – exhibit a negative temperature dependance the process may involve a pre-equilibrium The postulated concept (Davidovits et al., JPC, 1991) –Interface is a (thin) dynamic region –aggregates are formed, falling apart, re-forming… –liquidlike "clusters" merge with the nearby liquid notion of critical size for the cluster (N*) hability for hydrogen bounding –Solvation is the rate limiting step Use of the nucleation theory
Nucleation theory based model... Density Gas Interface Liquid
k desorb k sol ngng nsns ns*ns* n aq k ads Nathanson et al., JPC, 1996 Some more details... Competition between evaporation and clustering... In terms of transition-state theory... Nucleation theory gives the free energies...
Theory and experiments...
Capillary-wave model of gas-liquid exchange Knox and Phillips, JPC-B, 1998 Predicts a linear relationship between H and S! Mechanism: continuous mixing of the surface by thermally induced capillary waves leading to an increase of the coordination number
S and H relationship... This relationship is a highly striking feature!
Coordination number as a function of in-coming gas position Somasundaram et al., PCCP, 1999 Water density CO 2 N2N2 CH 3 CN Ar Bulk Surface Molecular dynamic simulation: coord. number increases smoothly during uptake coord. numbers are much larger (considering the first coordination shell) Why?
Water distribution function around... Somasundaram et al., PCCP, 1999 Energy max Molecule still surronded by water Solvation shell are perturbed Coord. Number is decreased Surface state Surface is perturbed solvation increases water density Film centre 2 solvation shells can be seen they occupy all the thickness!! Outside film water layering? Solute at: CO 2 N2N2 Å Contour interval: g cm- 3
Dynamics of solvation at the air/water interface Zimdars et al., Chem. Phys. Lett., 1999 Technique: femtosecond time-resolved surface second harmonic generation (TRSHG) Characteristic solvation time: about 800 fs So once adsorbed the molecules are rapidly solvated!
Ethanol on the surface... KE= kinetic energy Equilibrium KE at 310 K Acceleration due to the attraction well near the surface Thermal equilibrium is reached after 20 ps Surface state stable for more than 10 ns! Do adsorbed EtOH posses enough energy to leave the surface? EtOH Gas Liquid Wilson and Pohorille, JPC-B, 1997
Once equilibrium is reached... Taylor and Garrett, JPC-B, 1999 Density water Ethylene glycol Ethanol Orientation CO bond CC bond
Adsorption of gases at the interface: surface tension Surface tension of aqueous solutions of 1-propanol at 298 K as a function of the alcohol concentration Surface excess of 1-propanol in aqueous solution as a function of its concentration at 298 K Donaldson and Anderson, JPC-A, 1999 Gibbs equation Langmuir isotherm
Simulated free energy profile... Taylor and Garrett, JPC-B, 1999 Water density H2OH2O EtOH Glycol Interface=surface minimum Molecular dynamics yields different free energy profiles: no significant energy barrier to solvation meas. ~ 0.01) Scattering of EtOH: only 18 molecules over 1000 trajectories i.e.,
Other free energy profiles... Wilson and Pohorille, JPC-B, 1997 MeOH EtOH Somasundaram et al., PCCP, 1999 Maximum present? No max. ?
Free energy profiles for anesthetics Chipot et al., JPC-B, 1997 dichlorodifluoromethane (a), 1,2-dichloroperfluoroethane (b), 1-chloro-1,2,2-trifluorocyclobutane (c), 1,2-dichloroperfluorocyclobutane (d), perfluorocyclobutane (e), n-butane (f), 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4-octafluorobutane (g), 2,3-dichloroperfluorobutane (h), 1,2,3,4-tetrachloroperfluorobutane (i). water vapour a b c d e f,g,i h hexane vapour c d e hexane water a b c d e f,i g h
Another model for the accommodation process: Wilson and Pohorille, JPC-B, 1997 Water density From exp. From MDS After 20 ps After 60 ps Molecular dynamic trajectory Diffusion model Molecule is adsorbed with unit probability then diffuses simply into the bulk Time to diffuse out of the surface ~ns Pb: temperature dependence?
MDS and temperature effects... Increasing temperature leads to a lowering of the energy required to escape from the surface i.e., decreases with increasing temperature Water density Taylor and Garrett, JPC-B, 1999
Finally, what do we know? From the experiments: – decreases with temperature surface adsorption –relationship between S and H From a theoretical approach: –increase of coordination numbers –energy barrier is not too large (?) –long lived (?) surface state –surface solvation is fast solvation is not the rate limiting step (?) Various models –cluster predict the slope between S and H –capillary-wave can be fitted to the experimental data –diffusion
Challenge 2: understand bulk chemistry
What can happen once in the liquid? As already mentioned, the solute can undergo –solvation –acid-base dissociation The solute can also react with various partners –water (the most abundant!) aldehydes undergo gem-diol formation –(affecting both solubility and reactivity) N 2 O 5 is hydrolysed "instantaneously"! –(while quite slow in the gas phase) RCOX (X being an halogen) are slowly hydrolysed –(still affecting their tropospheric lifetimes and their impact on stratospheric ozone) N 2 O 5 + H 2 O 2 NO H + RCOX + H 2 O RCOOH + X - + H +
What can happen once in the liquid? The solute can also react with various partners –ions (nucleophilic attack) with HCHO –forming hydroxymethanesulfonate (HMSA) –need high pH for its formation (decomposition is OH - driven) –"stable" in acidic solutions –has been observed in the field, "stabilises" S(IV) and increases its solubility –light (photolysis) –forming radicals HCHO + HSO 3 - HOCH 2 SO 3 -
Ionic environment... Existence of charge exchange reactions –For example: 1992 Nobel Prize in Chemistry: R.A. Marcus for his theory for charge exchange reactions: calculation of free energy changes From Herrmann, 1997
Ionic strength and reactivity... In a classical "Physical chemistry" textbook (e.g. Atkins) Debye-Hückel limiting law Lg(k/k 0 ) I NO 3 + Cl - Debye and Mc Aulay Ion pairing
Hydroxyl radicals OH is certainly the most important radical Sources –uptake from the gas phase –photolysis of nitrite, nitrate, H 2 O 2 –"dark" reactions of reduced metal ions Fe 2+ + H 2 O 2 Fe 3+ + OH + OH - Reactivity, OH undergoes all possible pathways –H abstraction polar compounds (alcools, ethers,, acids,…) have similar reactivities as in the gas phase alkanes, DMS have higher aqueous reactivities OH + HSO 3 - H 2 O + SO 3 - –addition to double bonds –charge exchange OH + SO 3 -- OH - + SO 3 -
Hydroperoxyl and Superoxide radicals HO 2 … –is very abundant in the troposphere –is quite soluble (H~10 3 M atm -1 ) –have a large uptake will be only limited by gas phase diffusion –in-cloud HO2 concentration decreases by a factor 2-3 clouds suppresses the reaction: –HO 2 + NO OH + NO 2 increases the NO/NOx ratio in the liquid phase Acting as oxidant Acting as reductant
Halides radicals Ubiquitous –many potential sources marine, erosion... and very reactive From Buxton et al., 2000
Nitrate radical Key reactant also in the aqueous phase May be taken up by clouds –solubility is only moderate (~0.6 M atm -1 ) May be formed in-situ –OH + HNO 3 NO 3 + H 2 O –SO NO 3 - SO NO 3 –SO Cl - SO Cl –NO 3 + Cl - NO Cl Will undergo a full set of reactions –NO 3 + OH - NO OHCharge exchange –RH + NO3 R + HNO 3 H abstraction –addition to doubles bonds
Sulfur oxide radicals SO x - Four basic radicals –SO 2 - SO O 2 SO 2 + O 2 - –will not form in atmospheric droplets –SO 3 - SO O 2 SO 5 - – SO 5 - SO SO SO O 2 SO SO 3 -- SO SO 4 -- –SO 4 - SO HSO 3 - SO SO 4 -- –The latter will undergo H abstraction addition to double bonds electron transfer
Sulfate radical Electron transfer H abstraction –correlation with BDE (with data from H. Herrmann)
Peroxy radicals Under atmospheric conditions oxygen addition is mostly irreversible ROO will react... –unimolecular decomposition strongly dependent on the nature of R –ROO R'CO + HO 2 –bimolecular reactions produces a full or carbonyl containing species –ROO + ROO R'CO + R"CHO + R'"OH –also, electron transfer and H abstraction (slow process) RH + X R + HX R + O 2 ROO
Clouds support acidity formation... Nitrogen oxides Sulfur (IV) to Sulfur (VI) oxidation S(IV): SO 2.H 2 O, HSO 3 -, SO 3 -- / S(VI): SO 4 -- –by dissolved O 3 S(IV) S(VI) + O 2 –by dissolved H 2 O 2 S(IV) + H 2 O 2 S(VI) + H 2 O proceeds according to: HSO H 2 O 2 SO 2 OOH - + H 2 O SO 2 OOH - + H + H 2 SO 4 –both exhibit a complex pH dependency N 2 O 5 + H 2 O 2 NO H + HNO3 + H 2 O NO H 3 O +
S(IV) oxidation by OH, O 2 and Transition Metal Ions... SO 3 - S(IV) OH SO 5 - S(IV) HSO 5 - S(IV) SO 4 -- S(IV) SO 4 - S(IV)

How do we convert from surface to bulk… Gas Phase Liquid phase Density Interface a few Å Ethanol concentration a few nm? Detector Xe Lamp We can assume an interface thickness d (a few Å), then S d volume units We ignore our sounding depth: on what length are integrating the signal?
Why faster at the Interface? Solvation shells are incomplete –Less water to remove before reaction Costs less energy Mobility is higher –More reaction encounters Concentrations may be higher –Surface tension and surface excess –Particular cases: some anions
