Research

Research in Professor Donahue's laboratory focuses on four interrelated topics: the oxidation pathways of reduced compounds throughout the atmosphere, formation and behavior of organic aerosols, measurement of atmospheric free radicals and stable molecules, and the fundamental quantum mechanics and dynamics controlling reactivity and causing variation in reactivity among related chemical systems.

Atmospheric Oxidation Mechanisms

Reduced compounds react in the atmosphere with oxidants including hydroxyl (OH), ozone (O3), and nitrate (NO3). Their oxidation products include oxygenated organics (aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide), ozone, and organic aerosols. We directly observe the mechanisms connecting these reactants and products by initiating the oxidation in a flow-tube and observing the reaction downstream. The time scale of these experiments allows us to observe mechanisms step-by-step while permitting us to study interactions typical of the real atmosphere.

Organic Aerosols

We study organic aerosols over longer timescales (minutes to hours) in the CMU smog chamber and in the CLOUD chamber at CERN. We can observe and constrain secondary aerosol formation as well as the chemical processing of condensed-phase organics by gas-phase oxidants. We also study the phase partitioning thermodynamics of low-volatility organic mixtures. The broad objective is to understand how oxidation mechanisms and their products, including ozone and aerosols, change with changing atmospheric composition.

Fundamental Reactivity

Chemical reactivity can evolve dramatically among a series of related reactions. Reactivity can differ by a factor of a million or more, and similar reactions can have qualitatively different reaction products. This has profound consequences for atmospheric chemistry, combustion, and all other systems involving complex mechanisms. It also indicates that observation without fundamental understanding is dangerous. A major objective of our work is to understand the fundamental quantum mechanics and reaction dynamics describing this evolution.
Ambient Measurement
In our lab we employ multiple methods, including spectroscopy, mass-spectrometry, and gas chromatography to measure both the short-lived intermediates involved in atmospheric oxidation chemistry as well as the longer-lived precursors and products of that chemistry. The objective is to test with in-situ observation the oxidation mechanisms developed in our laboratory studies.
