Abstract

original image

Chemistry at the air–water interface of atmospherically relevant radicals is different from both the bulk and the gas phase. In their Communication on page 5413 ff., M. F. Ruiz-López and co-workers carried out computer simulations on HO2. and O2.− radicals. The effective ionic dissociation constant of the HO2. radical and the redox potential of the O2.− radical are lower at the interface than in the bulk.
