The Donaldson Research Group: Chemistry at Atmospheric Interfaces

In our lab, we are interested in chemistry that happens on surfaces which are exposed to the atmosphere, as well as photochemistry that takes place following vibrational excitation of atmospheric molecules. We use tools from physical, analytical, and theoretical chemistry to try to understand the processes which take place at the interface between the atmosphere and a condensed phase, especially aqueous droplets and organic coatings. We use spectroscopic and theoretical methods to study the chemistry of vibrationally excited molecules in the atmosphere.
