Study of Iodine Oxide Particles at the Air/Sea Interface in the Presence of Surfactants and Humic Acid

In the present study, the formation procedure of iodine oxide particle (IOP) has been investigated in the presence of surfactants (nonanoic and stearic acids NA-SA) and humic acid (HA). It was established that iodine oxide which was mixed with the organic compounds (HA, NA and SA), and then irradiated with a xenon lamp leads to the formation of IOP. The evolution of formed particles number was followed by a scanning mobility particle sizer.
