7. A system comprising:
an aerosolization component configured to receive a liquid and convert the liquid into an aerosol;
a negative pressure source configured to convert the aerosol into a vapor by applying a negative pressure to the aerosol, wherein the aerosol is converted into the vapor using only the negative pressure from the negative pressure source;
a separation component configured to separate a contaminant particle from the vapor to generate an at least partially decontaminated vapor; and
a condenser configured to convert the at least partially decontaminated vapor into liquid.
