It has been suggested that an organic aerosol containing unsaturated organic compounds at the surface would likely be processed by atmospheric ozone. The ozonolysis of oleic acid gives rise to the formation of products having shorter chain lengths than the starting molecule, and are consequently more water soluble than oleic acid. Hence, the exposure of a monolayer of oleic acid to ozone should lead to a decrease in surface activity at the air-water interface. A model system is used for real… CONTINUE READING
