Welcome to EMSL
EMSL- and DOE-supported research on the formation and lifecycle secondary organic aerosols shows current climate models are underestimating the total amount of carbon-containing particles formed in the air.
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.
A team of PNNL scientists doing some of their research at EMSL developed a unified theory and unified multiscale model that simulates water flow at all scales. The new approach is important for understanding water cycling and its effect on agriculture, water conservation and climate changes.
Reduction-oxidation, or "redox," regulation is essential for many biological processes. Using a commercially available resin, PNNL researchers working at EMSL developed an innovative, efficient method for enriching and quantitatively analyzing several post-translational modifications of cysteine residues.
