CRF Researchers Make Direct Kinetic Measurements of Criegee Intermediate

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories’ Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester, Bristol University, University of Southampton, and Hong Kong Polytechnic have successfully measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, and proven that the reactivity of the atmospheric chemical depends strongly on which way the molecule is twisted. The measurements will provide further…

CRF Researchers Awarded the David A. Shirley Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement

The CRF is pleased to announce that researchers Craig Taatjes and David Osborn, along with collaborators at the University of Manchester and the University of Bristol, were awarded the 2012 David A. Shirley Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievement at LBNL’s Advanced Light Source (ALS). The award, which is named after a former Professor of Chemistry…

Sandia researchers, UK partners publish groundbreaking work on Criegee intermediates in Science magazine

In a breakthrough paper published in this week’s issue of Science magazine, researchers from Sandia’s Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester and Bristol University report direct           measurements of reactions of a gas-phase Criegee intermediate using photoionization mass spectrometry. To read further, and to see a video of the Sandia…
