Title: Dark air-liquid interfacial chemistry of glyoxal and hydrogen peroxide

Abstract

The air-liquid (a-l) interfacial chemistry of glyoxal is of great interest in atmospheric chemistry. We present molecular imaging of glyoxal and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) dark aging using in situ time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS). More organic peroxides and cluster ions are observed at the a-l interface in dark aging compared to UV aging. Cluster ions formed with more water molecules in dark aging indicate that aqueous secondary organic aerosols (aqSOA) could form hydrogen bond with water molecules, suggesting that aqSOA at the aqueous phase are more hydrophilic. Thus the interfacial aqSOA in dark aging could increase hygroscopic growth. Strong contribution of cluster ions and large water clusters in dark aging indicates change of solvation shells at the a-l interface. The observation of organic peroxides and cluster ions indicates that the aqueous surface could be a reservoir of organic peroxides and odd hydrogen radicals at night. Our findings provide new understandings of glyoxal a-l interfacial chemistry and fill in the gap between field measurements and the climate model simulation of SOA.
