Description of scientific projects
We conduct laboratory studies aimed at elucidating the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions important in the atmosphere. Our main current focus involves unraveling the complex mechanisms involved in the oxidation of hydrocarbon species, both natural and anthropogenic, with an emphasis on the chemistry of the reactive peroxy and alkoxy radicals generated in these oxidation schemes.
