We are excited to announce the online publication of the Mario Molina Festschrift in J. Phys. Chem. A.! Check out this excellent collection of atmospheric chemistry-themed articles, submitted in honor of Prof. Mario Molina (link).
Prof. McNeill and the other editors of the Festschrift wrote a preface to the special issue in tribute to Prof. Molina (link).
Our heartiest congratulations to Mark De Luna (L) and Andrew Sumner (R), new recipients of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! Mark is pursuing his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at USC, and Andrew is in the Ph.D. program in Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale. They join a growing list of former McNeill Group undergrads who have gone on to win this award. Congratulations guys!
We’re very pleased to announce the publication of this paper, led by the Surratt Group at UNC. It is the first example of the application of simpleGAMMA to model and help interpret field measurements of tracer species for aqueous SOA formation.

We are happy to announce that our paper on simpleGAMMA is now available online! We welcome your comments.
simpleGAMMA is currently being used to analyze data from SOAS 2013, and we are working with collaborators to couple simpleGAMMA with regional and global scale 3D atmospheric chemistry models – please contact Prof. McNeill (email@example.com) if you are interested in using simpleGAMMA or learning more about it.

Our new aerosol chamber reactor is finally inside the lab – after entering through a hole that was cut in the wall! Time for some science!
We are eagerly awaiting installation of an aerosol chamber reactor that’s too big to fit through the door, so a hole was made in the wall! Luckily the hole has been boarded up in the meantime so no Science can escape!
Our publication, “Organic matrix effects on the formation of light-absorbing compounds from α-dicarbonyls in aqueous salt solution“ (Drozd and McNeill, ES:PI 2014) has been included in a special collection of research papers, review articles, and themed collections on the subject “Chemistry in Climate Change” by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Our paper and all the others in this excellent collection can be read and downloaded for free from the RSC until December 20th, 2014.
Here are a few other articles from the collection that we recommend:
We are very happy to announce a new publication from our collaboration with Prof. Ilona Riipinen of Stockholm University! Silja Hakkinen, a Ph.D. student at University of Helsinki who is supervised by Prof. Riipinen, visited our laboratory from Summer 2012- Summer 2014 as a Fulbright Scholar. This paper is result of some of the fantastic work she did during that time. Great work, Silja!
