Description
Predicting the impact of atmospheric aerosols, through their evolving size and chemical composition, relies on using mechanistic models that attempt to predict the partitioning of potentially millions of such compounds between the gas phase and condensed phase. Uncertainties in the physicochemical properties of pure components and condensed phase mixtures affect our ability to accurately predict and resolve this partitioning. How do we tackle such uncertainties? In 2 ongoing NERC grants, a range of fundamental properties of pure components and mixtures (vapour pressures, viscosities and diffusion constants), are being measured with the objective of improving pre...
