Reactions at acqueous interfaces
Groupleader: Hendrik Bluhm
The focus of the group is on the investigation of aqueous interfaces, in particular ice/vapor and liquid/vapor interfaces. Heterogeneous reactions at these interfaces drive many processes in the environment and atmosphere. Examples are the capture and release of trace gases by aerosol droplets and the sequestration of CO2 by the oceans.
Our goal is a molecular-level description of the heterogeneous chemistry of these interfaces under conditions as close as possible to those in natural environments.
