Our research focusses on the laboratory study of gas phase kinetics and photochemistry of trace species including atoms, free radicals and weakly bound molecules. The work is targeted at understanding the role that such species play in the Earth's atmosphere, particularly with regard to environmental issues such as stratospheric ozone loss, urban smog formation, and global warming.
