Researchers Demonstrate Effective Recycling Of Radicals During Isoprene Degradation
2013-10-07 07:02:51

Forschungszentrum Juelich Hydroxyl (OH) radicals – known as the detergent of the atmosphere – decompose isoprene in the air. This leads to the creation of new OH radicals, which are then able to purify the air of other pollutants and trace gases. The scientific community had previously only been able to speculate about this mechanism. The atmosphere has an astonishing ability to cleanse itself. Chemical processes ensure that trace gases and pollutants are removed from the atmosphere...

Pollution, Storms And Climate: NASA Mission Investigates How They Interact
2013-06-07 11:09:55

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online To investigate how air pollution and natural emissions, which are pushed high into the atmosphere by large storms, affect atmospheric composition and climate, NASA´s DC-8 and ER-2 science aircraft will take flight over the southern US this summer. This will be the most complex NASA airborne science campaign of the year drawing together coordinated observations from NASA satellites, aircraft and an array of ground sites. The...

Trees Release Volatile Organic Compounds That Aid In Smog Production
2013-04-26 09:53:33

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2004, a group of Princeton scientists found trees release the volatile organic compound (VOC) isoprene that reacts in the air to form particulate pollution, or smog. However, the mechanism behind this process wasn't known until a new study from scientists at the University of North Carolina (UNC) was released this week showing how isoprene´s reaction to sunlight leads to the formation of harmful air pollution. After isoprene...

Isoprene is a Jekyll-and-Hyde gas that is capable of both warming and cooling the Earth depending on the prevailing conditions. It is an important industrial gas, necessary for the manufacture of important compounds such as rubber and vitamins, but very little is known about how isoprene is cycled in the environment. Yesterday, at the Society for General Microbiology's spring meeting in Edinburgh, Dr Terry McGenity revealed the identity of some crucial players in the gas cycle;...

Motorists will be driving on the world's first "green" tires within the next five years, scientists reported yesterday, thanks to a revolutionary new technology that produces a key tire ingredient from renewable feedstocks rather than petroleum-derived feedstocks. The technology, described at the 239th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), stands to reduce the tire industry's reliance on crude oil "” seven gallons of which now go into each of the approximately...
