It is well-known that well-formed monolayers of long-chain alcohols on water dramatically reduce the rate of water evaporation. Recent experiments, however, have shown that the short-chain surfactant butanol has a negligible effect on the rate of water evaporation from a solution of supercooled sulfuric acid. We used molecular dynamics simulations to… CONTINUE READING
