Chemicals in the Atmosphere: Solubility, Sources and Reactivity

Peter Fogg and James Sangster (editors)

John Wiley & Sons, 2003 (ISBN 0-471-98651-8)

This book—the outcome of a project of the Commission on Solubility Data—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 behavior 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 modeling 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.
