ACCESS HIGHLIGHT AT FELIX : Formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

In a recent transnational access project, the group of Ingo Fischer from University of Würzburg, Germany, teamed up with Anouk Rijs and her colleagues from Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands to use IR/UV spectroscopy at the FELIX facility (Nijmegen) to identify the structure of condensation products produced in combustion, and to derive a reaction mechanism.
