A simple method for modulation of aerosol particle formation in Earth's atmosphere is suggested. In this way a crystal of natural mineral is dispersed under ambient air. Interactions between the surface of such obtained TiO2 and halogen-containing organic compounds, acetone and CO, enriched by isotope 13CO, under darkness and irradiation were investigated. The mechanisms of investigation processes are suggested.
