Newswise: Sandia research investigates how organic reactions affect Earth’s atmosphere

Sandia research investigates how organic reactions affect Earth’s atmosphere

Sandia National Laboratories

LIVERMORE, Calif. — Volatile organic compounds can be found in the air — everywhere. A wide range of sources, including from plants, cooking fuels and household cleaners, emit these compounds directly. They also can be formed in the atmosphere through a complex network of photochemical reactions.Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and colleagues from other institutions investigated the reactions of hydroxyl and methylperoxy radicals to understand their impact on the atmosphere’s ability to process pollutants.
