Unexpected New Mechanism Reveals How Molecules Become Trapped in Ice

JCP-Sibener-Ice-Chicago2.jpg

Expanding our knowledge of the way molecules interact with ice surfaces is a key goal not only for climate change but also a much wider range of other environmental, scientific and defense-related issues. Now, a team of researchers has discovered a new mechanism they call “stable energetic embedding” of atoms and molecules within ice. The work is described in The Journal of Chemical Physics.
