Special_Topics : AirPollutants (20 Variations)
Which of the following air pollutants can be described as a photochemically active free radical that contributes to acid rain and respiratory irritation?
Atmospheric Chemistry
Special_Topics : GeneralAcidRain (20 Variations)
Which of the following statements about acid rain is the most correct?
Atmospheric Chemistry
Special_Topics : RainFallpH (20 Variations)
The rainfall in central Wisconsin has a pH of 4.8 (National Atmospheric Deposition Program). Take a look at the EPA webpage Effects of Acid Rain: Lakes & Streams. This site has a chart of the pH at which several aquatic species begin to suffer. Determine which of the following species will be most affected by rainfall of this acidity if the lakes and streams in central Wisconsin aren't buffered enough to neutralize some of the acid. (There may be more than one correct answer.)

Real-World Topics: Medicinal Chemistry  Arrietta Clauss
Instructors often look for real-world topics that interest students when designing labs and preparing lectures. The chemistry associated with drugs is a fertile area, and the archives of the Journal can be a resource for interesting drug-related activities to enhance student learning.

Molecular Models of Polymers Used in Sports Equipment  William F. Coleman
The Featured Molecules this month are a number of monomers and their associated polymers used in making equipment for a variety of high-impact sports. The molecules provide students with an introduction to an important area of applied chemistry and also enable them to examine complex structures using the models they have seen applied to small molecules.

Today's Science for Tomorrow's Scientists  Caroline Pharr
Today's Science for Tomorrow's Scientists (TSTS) is an interactive Web site containing modular instructional units that introduce current science research through online tutorials. Research groups can use images, movies, and other interactive functions to share their work with others, particularly students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Molecular Models of Volatile Organic Compounds  William F. Coleman
This month's Featured Molecules come from the Report from Other Journals column, Nature: Our Atmosphere in the Year of Planet Earth, and the summary found there of the paper by Lelieveld et al. (1, 2) Added to the collection are several volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are emitted by a variety of plants. The term VOCs is a common one in environmental chemistry, and is interpreted quite broadly, typically referring to any organic molecule with a vapor pressure sufficiently high to allow for part-per-billion levels in the atmosphere. Common VOCs include methane (the most prevalent VOC), benzene and benzene derivatives, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and many others. The source may be natural, as in the case of the plant emissions, or anthropogenic, as in the case of a molecule such as the gasoline additive methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE).The oxidation of isoprene in the atmosphere has been a source of interest for many years. Several primary oxidation products are included in the molecule collection, although a number of isomeric forms are also possible (3).The area of VOCs provides innumerable topics for students research papers and projects at all levels of the curriculum from high-school chemistry through the undergraduate courses in chemistry and environmental science. Along the way students have the opportunity for exposure to fields such as epidemiology and toxicology, that may be new to them, but are of increasing importance in the environmental sciences. The MTBE story is an interesting one for students to discover, as it once again emphasizes the role that unintended consequences play in life. An exploration of the sources, structures, reactivity, health and environmental effects and ultimate fate of various VOCs reinforces in students minds just how interconnected the chemistry of the environment is, a lesson that bears repeating frequently.
