A simulation unveils the origin of the first biological molecules

Press release 04/04/2018

Researchers of the Institute for chemical-physical processes of the National research council of Messina in collaboration with the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic of Brno and the Sorbonne of Paris have carried out a numerical experiment, through advanced computational techniques, showing the chemical process which could have determined the primordial synthesis of erythrose, a direct precursor of ribose, the sugar that makes up RNA, thus shedding light on the origin of the first biological molecules and therefore on the beginning of life on Earth. The results have been published on Chemical Communications of the Royal Society of Chemistry

Global surface ozone metrics identified for climate change, human health, and crop/ecosystem research

News 11/04/2018

The use of different air quality markers for surface ozone calculated from the same time series can result in different trend patterns. This outcome is important to researchers as well as policymakers and regulators, who use exposure metrics to assess how changes in ozone levels affect human health, vegetation, and climate. That's one conclusion from a new metrics assessment based on the Tropospheric Ozone Assessment Report (TOAR), an effort by the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project to create the world’s largest database of surface ozone observations from all available ozone monitoring stations around the globe. The paper was published on April 6 in the journal 'Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene': among the authors Cnr-Ipsp researcher Elena Paoletti
