Featured Stories

Alex Guenther, EMSL’s Atmospheric Aerosol Systems Science Theme lead and a PNNL Laboratory Fellow, is impacting the atmospheric science community and has the science and journal citations to prove it.
A special issue of Proteomics highlighted EMSL’s top down proteomics expertise. The journal featured Ljiljana Paša-Tolic, EMSL’s lead scientist for mass spectroscopy, who co-edited the special issue, co-authored the publication’s editorial and contributed to three of the research articles. Other EMSL and PNNL researchers also contributed to the special issue.
Chemists have unexpectedly made two differently colored crystals – one orange, the other blue – from one chemical in the same flask while studying a special kind of molecular connection called an agostic bond. EMSL's supercomputer Chinook was used to perform theoretical calculations on the crystalline structures. The researchers were studying agostic bonds as part of a project to make liquid fuels from carbon dioxide to replace fuels from oil. Read the PNNL news release.
To better understand site-specific processes, properties, and conditions controlling uranium bioremediation, scientists developed faster, more detailed simulations, maximizing the use of broader Rifle Site field experiment data.
