I focus my efforts at PSI on free radical/molecule kinetics, nanoparticle/atmospheric aerosol characterization using a gas-phase titration method to investigate surface functional groups on aerosols. We have reinvestigated ethyl + HI => C2H6 + I where we find a low rate constant and a positive activation energy in the range 210-650 K. We plan to investigate alkyl peroxy radicals using photoelectron spectroscopy as well as reactions such as RO2 + O2 as a function of T with R = CH3 and t-C4H9.
