In this article, we describe a series of experiments investigating the interaction of the important stratospheric reservoir species HCl with the surface of a thin ice film. Reflection absorption infrared spectroscopy and thermal desorption spectroscopy have been used to identify the nature of the ionic hydrates formed under a variety of pressure, temperature, and exposure regimes.
