Welcome to EMSL
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.
The effects of biogeochemical and geochemical processes in the ground under us are on massive scales. Scientists working at EMSL are getting a handle on these gigantic macroscopic processes by focusing on the microscopic scale. By creating micromodels and incorporating supercomputer simulations, researchers are gaining a better understanding of the processes that affect our entire ecosystem.
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.
