Thesis title: Modelling photochemistry of aldehydes and ketones

Supervisors: Scott KABLE , Meredith JORDAN

Thesis abstract:

Aldehydes and ketones contain carbonyl chromophores so are photochemically active in the troposphere. Attmospheric chemistry modelling only excited state chemistry considers only the excited state chemistry of these molecules. However we know the ground state chemistry of these molecules should not be ignored. I aim to increase our understanding of the atmospheric behaviour of these molecules both by investigating the processes that return the molecule to its ground state, and by considering the atmospheric fate of ground state dissociation products.
