A paper (link here) by Wei Cheng & Khalil Hanna (École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie, Rennes, France) and J.-F. Boily. We show that low loadings of organic matter on minerals make surfaces more hydrophobic while high loading make surfaces more
hydrophilic. This work is one of the several to be published from Wei’s 6-month visit in Umeå in March-September 2018.
A recent collaborative venture by the Boily group in the study of pine root respiration with the Näsholm group at SLU. The paper “Improved in vivo measurement of alternative oxidase respiration in Field‐Collected pine roots” is now available in Physiologia Plantarum
Congratulations Merve Yesilbas for a 3 MSEK Postdoctoral Research Grant from the Swedish Research Council! Merve will be using these funds to pursue her research career with Dr. Janice Bishop of the SETI institute in San Francisco to work on the mineralogy of planet Mars.
The Boily group thanks the Kempe foundation for a 2-year extension to our Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry work, with group member Dmitry Shevela, on carbon isotopic signatures in minerals.
