This work that explores the chemistry-climate implications of adding chlorine to the atmosphere as a climate intervention technique.

Un estudio publicado en Nature muestra que una serie de compuestos que emite el océano, los halógenos naturales de vida corta, ejercen un efecto de enfriamiento indirecto sobre el clima de la Tierra.

Very short-lived halogens amplify recent past and future ozone depleting trends in the tropical stratosphere

On Tuesday 23rd of May we will have the last edition of the 2022-2023 cycle of the Curie Colloquium. The invited speaker will be Prof. Anthony Ryan, director founder of the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures.

Miguel Mompeán García is awarded the “E. Pérez-Payá” 40 Prize of the SBE “For his notable efforts in understanding the mechanisms underlying molecular assembly in general and amyloid-type fibre formation in particular”

La división bacteriana es un proceso celular esencial estrechamente regulado por el complejo de membrana FtsEX. La estructura del supercomplejo FtsEX:EnvC:AmiB proporciona información fundamental sobre este proceso.

This study reconstructs the Arctic mercury biogeochemical cycle during the Glacial-Holocene transition, revealing a three-fold increase in mercury levels in the early Holocene, which coincided with abrupt climate warming.

The magnetic anisotropy on three atomic layers thick islands of Co on Ru(0001) are studied by spin-polarized low-energy electron microscopy (SPLEEM) finding a change of two orders of magnitude with the change from fcc to hcp..
