Yao et al presents a particle-resolved model study to characterise the relationship between aerosol mixing state and optical properties. A useful mixing state algorithm (mixing state index) is applied to quantify the complicated role of aerosol mixing state in the calculations of aerosol optical properties. Overall, this study is well written, and the results of this study are important for the estimation of atmospheric aerosol climate effects. I have two major comments and several minor comments before the manuscript can be accepted for publication.
