Szmigielski group

Environmental Chemistry Group 


 Research interests concern the following topics:

Formation and transformation of seconday organic aerosol  (SOA) in the lower atmosphere
1. Probing the unexplored atmospheric chemistry leading to SOA components through aqueous phase and/or photooxidation reactions
2. Search for novel atmospheric SOA tracers in biogenic and anthropogenic environments
3. Development of hyphenated mass spectrometric methods for characterization of aerosol particles




** Insect-insect and insect-plant interaction in the forest environment

1. Probing the molecular composition of insects' pheromones, e.g. Dendrolimus pini sex pheromone

2. Development of olfactometric, electroantenographic and wind tunnel methods

3. Analysis of volatile profiles from various host tree species, e.g., Scots pines
