Anthropogenic ammonia emissions and the water content matter more than dry particle composition for the acidity of atmospheric aerosols in populated regions more

Press release of the Bjerknes Center for Climate Research and the University of Bergen, Norway

A new study published in Nature Geoscience shows that temperature in the Southern Ocean was more tightly linked to the extent of Antarctic glaciation during past greenhouse climates than previously thought. This affects how we see the complex mechanisms driving climate change around Antarctica, a region that is considered especially vulnerable to future changes. more

Researcher at the MPI for Chemistry honored with the Schmauss Award of the German Association for Aerosol Research more

Reversed ratio of chiral volatile organic compounds over the Amazon rainforest reveal insects as unexplored important source of forest emissions more

Press release of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena more

Human skin emits much more ammonia than the breath. The sticky molecule can spread on all surfaces and change the chemistry of our house. more

Two research aircraft investigate reduced concentrations of pollutants in the air

Joint press release of the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry and the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) more

Reduced air pollution by the coronavirus lockdowns leads to less premature deaths and asthma cases amongst children more

Fast reacting volatile chemicals with short atmospheric lifetimes can be smelled more sensitively than persistent ones more

There are many common household materials which block particles and droplets, and which can reduce the risk of infection from the coronavirus more

A team of scientists discovered that people carry hazardous compounds from cigarette smoke into non-smoking environments more

Researchers calculate that the effects of air pollution shorten the lives of people around the world by an average of almost three years more

During a ship expedition around the Arabian Peninsula, scientists discovered unexplainably high levels of ethane and propane in the air above the Northern Red Sea. The mysterious source of the emissions was hidden deep under the water surface. more

The Director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry will take over the leadership of the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina in March 2020 more

New method improves identification and quantification of nitrogen oxide sources by satellite more

Physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz wins James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials more

50 years ago, Max Planck scientists were among the first to analyze lunar rock samples more

Climate researchers solve mystery of extended aerosol layer in the atmosphere more

An international research team has found that the Tagish Lake meteorite, which hit Canada 19 years ago, contains abundances of carbonaceous material formed in the outer reaches of the solar system. The discovery sheds new light on the celestial body’s origin. more

The Max Planck Planck Institute for Chemistry mourns the loss of Prof. Dr. Peter Warneck more
