Title: Assessing long-range contributions to the charge asymmetry of ion adsorption at the air–water interface

Abstract

Cations and anions have different affinities for the air-water interface. The intrinsic orientation of surface molecules suggests such an asymmetry, but the bias is dominated by solvent response that is spatially local and significantly nonlinear.
