Laser studies of free-radical recycling reactions in the atmosphere and biofuel oxidation

Applications accepted all year round
This is a project to study gas-phase reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (RO2) in lab-based experiments at York & elsewhere. These reactions control radical propagation and termination rates in low to moderate temperature conditions; RO2 are therefore key intermediates in biofuel combustion and atmospheric oxidation.
