Binary nucleation in acid–water systems. II. Sulfuric acid–water and a comparison with methanesulfonic acid–water


This work presents a systematic investigation of binary nucleation rates for sulfuric acid and water and the effect of temperature on these rates at isothermal, subsaturated conditions. The results from nucleation rate measurements for the sulfuric acid (H2SO4)–water system are discussed and compared to those previously presented for methanesulfonic acid (MSA)–water [B. E. Wyslouzil, J. H. Seinfeld, R. C. Flagan, and K. Okuyama, J. Chem. Phys. (submitted)]. Experiments were conducted at relative humidities (Rh) ranging from 0.006
