In natural environments such as atmospheric aerosols, organic compounds coexist with inorganic salts but, until recently, were not thought to interact chemically. We have recently shown that inorganic ammonium ions, NH(4)(+), act as catalysts for acetal formation from glyoxal, a common atmospheric gas. In this work, we report that inorganic ammonium ions, NH(4)(+), and carbonate ions, CO(3)(2-), are also efficient catalysts for the aldol condensation of carbonyl compounds. In the case of NH(4… CONTINUE READING
