Interdisciplinary researchers will examine impacts on overburdened communities
In a discovery that has implications for our understanding of the air we breathe, UCI chemists report that they’ve found nanoscale fragments of fungal cells in the atmosphere. The pieces are extremely small, measuring about 30 nanometers in diameter, and much more abundant than previously thought, the researchers say in a study published this week […]
Britain’s Royal Society of Chemistry has awarded its Environment Prize to Barbara Finlayson-Pitts, UCI professor of chemistry and co-director of AirUCI, “for outstanding contributions to the chemical sciences in the area of environment, sustainability and energy.” Specifically, she was recognized for her pioneering research revealing new processes in the formation of photochemical air pollution and […]
UCI’s Rowland Hall was officially designated a National Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society in a campus ceremony Tuesday. The building is named after F. Sherwood “Sherry” Rowland, a founding faculty member whose groundbreaking research in the 1970s demonstrated the potentially catastrophic effect of chlorofluorocarbons on the Earth’s ozone layer, which protects against the sun’s […]
