HULIS in Nanoaerosol Clusters; Investigations of Surface Tension and Aggregate Formation using Molecular Dynamics Simulations
2011 (English)In: Atmos. Chem. Phys. Discuss.Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Cloud condensation nuclei act as cores for water vapor condensation, and their composition and chemical properties may enhance or depress the ability for droplet growth. In this study we use molecular dynamics simulations to show that humic-like substances of larger systems (8.6 nm in diameter) mimic experimental data well referring to reduction of surface tension. The structural properties examined show the ability for the humic-like substances to aggregate inside the nanoaerosol clusters.
