Craig Taatjes and Davis Osborn’s paper, “Direct Measurements of Conformer-Dependent Reactivity of the Criegee Intermediate CH3CHOO,” was one of 12 papers featured in the April Science Roundup, a monthly review of highlights for AAAS members. The paper was published in the April 12 edition of Science magazine.

In the paper, Taatjes and Osborn explain how they, along with several collaborators, measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, research that will provide further insights into hydrocarbon combustion and atmospheric chemistry. This builds on their earlier accomplishment in making the first direct measurements of Criegee intermediate kinetics on CH2OOs, published last year in Science.
