Every breath you take: the chemistry of air
Dr. Cora Young (Assistant Professor and the Rogers Chair in Chemistry)
Air is usually invisible, so it’s easy to assume it’s simple. Yet it’s composed of a wide diversity of tiny molecules – not merely oxygen – some of which could be harmful and travel great distances. How do we know what’s in our air? Professor Cora Young will tell us this and how it influences air quality, climate, and our health.
