Heterogeneous loss of OH on NaCl and NH4NO3 at tropospheric temperatures

Abstract. The uptake coefficients (Γ) for OH radicals on some dry salts of tropospheric interest (NaCl and NH4NO3) have been investigated as a function of temperature using the flow tube technique combined with an EPR spectrometer as a detection method. The temperature dependence of Γ-values measured over the temperature range 245–340 K can be expressed in Arrhenius form: ΓOHNaCl=(1.2±0.7)×10–5exp[(1750±200)/T] and ΓOHNH4NO3=(1.4±0.5)×10–4exp[(1000±100)/T]. These Arrhenius expressions lead to very similar Γ-values (~4×10–3) for both salts studied at 300 K. It is shown that the heterogeneous OH sinks on solids aerosol play a very minor role in tropospheric chemistry in comparison with the homogeneous sinks.
