Chemicals in the Atmosphere: Solubility, Sources and Reactivity
Fogg and James
John Wiley & Sons, 2003
This book is the outcome of project
2001-037-1-500 of the Commission on Solubility Data and follows
discussions between members of this commission and the Commission on
Atmospheric Chemistry extending over several years.
The book provides a broad survey and theoretical basis of many aspects
of the behaviour of stable and unstable chemicals in the atmosphere.
There is special emphasis on heterogeneous processes at all levels of
the atmosphere. Modern techniques of investigation and of modelling
such processes are discussed and many experimental data relating to
interaction of gases with cloud droplets and with surfaces of solid
particles are included. There is a detailed account of theoretical and
practical aspects of Henry's law constants including their relationship
to infinite dilution activity coefficients. Experimental values have
been compiled and evaluated for dissolution in pure water and in some
cases sea water of 15 inorganic and 153 organic stable compounds.
This book includes
* A survey of many theoretical and experimental aspects of heterogeneous
processes in the atmosphere.
* Evaluated solubility data for dissolution of stable and unstable compounds
in cloud droplets and seawater.
