Thermometric Soots on Warm Jupiters

It's kind of an old paper (Nov 2009) but it is rather interesting, with applications to HD 189733 b.

Something of interest,
In most cases planetary compositions inferred from transit observations will differ markedly from those inferred from reflected or emitted light from the same planet.

Could this explain the apparent conflict in models of Gliese 436 b's atmosphere?
