Multiphase Chemical Kinetics at the Interface of Earth and Life Sciences

Abstract

Multiphase chemistry deals with chemical reactions, transport processes and transformations between solids, liquids and gases. These processes are important for Earth sciences and climate as well as for life sciences and health. Focal points include aerosol-cloud-climate interactions, the effects of air pollutants on allergies and inflammation, and the development of kinetic models. Recent advances and ongoing research activities will be outlined.
