Prebiotic chemistry on Titan ? The nature of Titan's aerosols and their potential evolution at the satellite surface.
This talk will be the opportunity to have a general overview of Titan's chemistry, with a focus on what we know since the Cassini-Huygens mission, what we have learned from laboratory studies, and where the big gaps in our understanding lie. We will especially emphasize on: -what we have learned about the Titan's aerosol nature from Space Exploration (especially from the ACP experiment onboard the Huygens probe) and more globally on the aerosol fate in Titan's environment. -what we have learned about Titan's aerosol nature from laboratory studies (characterization of aerosol analogues, aka tholins). -what we have learned about Titan's aerosol chemical reactivity (evolution of tholins on simulated Titan's surfaces)
