Nitrogen oxides, also known as NOx, form when fossil fuels burn at high temperatures. When emitted from industrial sources such as coal power plants, these pollutants react with other compounds to produce harmful smog.
Eric Hoppe, senior scientist, was selected a 2019 American Chemical Society (ACS) fellow. Eric is being recognized for his contributions to analytical chemistry measurements and three decades of volunteer service to the ACS community.
Researchers apply numerical simulations to understand more about a sturdy material and how its basic structure responds to and resists radiation. The outcomes could help guide development of the resilient materials of the future.
His research is dedicated to the development of experimental tools and expertise critical for controlled synthesis and characterization of complex oxides, and gaining deep understanding of structure-composition-function relationships.
Patricia Huestis, a collaborator in the Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials (IDREAM) Energy Frontier Research Center, has been awarded the DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award.
PNNL’s Johannes Lercher was one of 148 researchers recognized at the annual conference of the National Academy of Inventors, held April 10-11, 2019 in Houston, Texas. Lercher recently achieved NAI fellow status, a highly selective honor.
A detailed analysis of blood samples from Ebola patients in Sierra Leone is providing clues about the progression of the effects of the virus and potential treatment pathways. The findings point to a critical role for a molecular pathway.
