Less is more when it comes to soot

Small particles emitted into air during the burning of hydrocarbon fuels damage the human respiratory system and enhance the greenhouse effect. In their agglomerated form, these particles form soot that consists predominantly of highly condensed carbon atoms. Now scientists report that their complex computational model provides a more accurate description of soot formation.
