New LSU SRP Publication on Oxidative Pyrolysis and Iron Oxide Nanoparticle Speciation 


In this study, the identity of iron oxide nanoparticle radical species was identifiedusing low temperature matrix isolation electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. These nanoparticles are associated with particulate formed from the oxidative pyrolysis of 1-methylnaphthalene (1-MN). Recent studies have indicated that iron oxide nanoparticles may relate to an increase in various pollutants associated with particulate matter. This research puts forth new facts to open future development for iron containing catlysts in the gas-phase.
