Multi-ion complexes in the stratosphere—implications for trace gases and aerosol

Abstract

The fate of stratospheric ions was, until recently, thought to be spontaneous neutralisation following mutual recombination of oppositely charged species. According to Ferguson1–3 this need not necessarily apply for sufficiently complex cluster ions, as clustering may stabilise ions against neutralisation. Thus, if neutralisation does not occur, stable ion… (More)
