The paper “Size Matters in the Water Uptake and Hygroscopic Growth of Atmospherically Relevant Multicomponent Aerosol Particles” is highlighted on the ACS Publication website under ACS Editors' Choice. The paper just published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry shows how the hygroscopic growth of nanoscale particles are distinctly different from microscale particles due to differences in their structure. This has important implications for the atmospheric impacts of these particles. The paper is co-authored by Olga Laskina, Holly Morris,

Professor Vicki Grassian, F. Wendell Miller Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Iowa has been named the 70th recipient of the Midwest Award from the American Chemical Society.
Professor Vicki Grassian and Professor Amanda Haes are pleased to announce the NanoEHS: Fundamental Science Needs Workshop in Boston, MA taking place this Saturday November 1, 2014. The goal of the workshop will be to discuss the fundamental science challenges, opportunities, and needs of the broad area of NanoEHS. The discussion will be used to prepare a paper that will be submitted to Environmental Science: Nano as a perspective article.
The National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at The University of Iowa recently received funding for 3 more years, from 2015-2017. The programe is co-directed by Professor Allan Guymon (Chemical and Biochemical Engineering) and Professor Sarah Larsen (Chemistry).
