Revealing the Role of Water Vapour in Methanol Atmospheric Reaction
25 May, 2020

The research team led by Prof. Wei REN has adopted high-level quantum chemistry calculations to provide a definitive answer to the role of water vapour in some important atmospheric reactions. The new findings will enable a more accurate and reliable prediction of air pollution and atmospheric chemistry. The research work has been reported in the renowned scientific journal, Angewandte Chemie-International Edition and was highlighted as the Very Important Paper (VIP) (

Prof. Wei Ren studies kinetics in combustion, atmosphere and interstellar chemistry. He also develops novel spectroscopic techniques for trace gas sensing.
