Where Do the Ions Reside in a Highly Charged Droplet?

Styliani Consta University of Western Ontario


Droplets in atmospheric and electrosprayed aerosols carry more often than less, a multitude of ions. We address the question of the location of a collection of ions in charged aqueous droplets with linear dimensions in the nanometer
range using atomistic molecular dynamics and analytical theory. All the details of the computations have been described in the manuscript.
