UCI chemists find fungal shrapnel in the air

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 […]

UCI chemist to lead Sloan Foundation-funded project to remove CO2 from emissions and air

Jenny Yang, UCI associate professor of chemistry, will use a $1.5 million grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to help develop methods for the capture and removal of carbon dioxide from flue gases emitted by fossil fuel plants and from air. The funding will support an interdisciplinary team – led by Yang – from […]
