Since the theoretical investigation of the operator splitting error for non-linear systems is not possible at present time the paper presents a numerical investigation of this topic using a box-model framework. The considered system represents micro-physical and multiphase chemical processes relevant for an evolving poly-disperse particle population. Results show that the effect of operator splitting on the simulation results for total liquid water content, total content of chemical matter inside the particles, as well as for the total content of single aqueous phase species is increasing with increasing length of de-coupling intervals, but decreasing with increasing simulation time under the conditions specified for this study.
