This is a study into the phase transitions of aerosol composed of the ternary system ammonium sulfate (AS) malonic acid (MA) water using infrared extinction spec- troscopy. Twelve compositions were studied in both deli- quescence and efflorescence mode experiments. The pres- ence of a MA fraction, by dry mass, (fMA) of 0.1 in an AS aerosol altered the relative humidity at which the phase tran- sitions occur in an atmospherically significant manner. For compositions with 0.25
