Multiphase Chemistry and Open Access at the Interface of Earth and Life Sciences

Ulrich Pöschl, Prof. Dr., Director of Max Planck Institute for Chemistry , Mainz/Germany

Multiphase chemistry deals with chemical reactions, transport processes and transformations between solids, liquids and gases. These processes are important for Earth system science and climate research as well as for life and health sciences. In Earth system science and climate research, the focus of our department is on studying biological and organic aerosols, aerosol-cloud interactions and atmosphere-surface exchange processes. Concerning life and health sciences, we investigate how protein macromolecules are modified by air pollutants and how this affects allergic reactions and diseases. We try to elucidate the course of multiphase processes at the molecular level and its impact at the macroscopic and global scales. With regard to scientific publishing and communication, we promote open access for efficient dissemination and re-use of scientific knowledge, and multi-stage open peer review for efficient quality assurance through transparency and self-regulation.
