Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

Joel A. Thornton mostly deals with Aerosol, Analytical chemistry, Environmental chemistry, Mass spectrometry and Chemical ionization. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Volatility, Inorganic chemistry, Aqueous solution, Relative humidity and Solubility. His work carried out in the field of Volatility brings together such families of science as Thermal and Cloud condensation nuclei.

His study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ozone, Atmospheric chemistry, Reactive nitrogen, NOx and Troposphere. His Mass spectrometry research also works with subjects such as

  • Ionization together with Ozonolysis, Intramolecular force, Photochemistry and Hydrogen,
  • Ion that intertwine with fields like Reagent. His Chemical ionization study incorporates themes from Carbon, Iodide, Particulates and Dinitrogen pentoxide.

His most cited work include:

  • A large source of low-volatility secondary organic aerosol (817 citations)
  • A large source of low-volatility secondary organic aerosol (817 citations)
  • A large atomic chlorine source inferred from mid-continental reactive nitrogen chemistry (379 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Joel A. Thornton mainly investigates Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, Analytical chemistry and Ozone. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Aerosol, concentrating on Volatility and intersecting with Thermal decomposition and Chemical physics. Joel A. Thornton focuses mostly in the field of Environmental chemistry, narrowing it down to topics relating to NOx and, in certain cases, Radical.

The various areas that Joel A. Thornton examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Atmosphere, Meteorology and Nitrogen. His work in the fields of Analytical chemistry, such as Mass spectrometry, overlaps with other areas such as Reaction rate. His Ozone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Reactive nitrogen, Nitrogen oxide, Photochemistry and Alkyl.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Aerosol (47.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (34.15%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (24.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Aerosol (47.04%)
  • Environmental chemistry (34.15%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (24.39%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, Atmospheric sciences, NOx and Volatility. His Aerosol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ammonium nitrate, Atmosphere, Autoxidation, Mass spectrometry and Nitrate. He interconnects Smoke, Chlorine, Particulates, Nitric acid and Chloride in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry.

His work investigates the relationship between NOx and topics such as Ozone that intersect with problems in Pollutant, Nitrogen oxide and Air quality index. While the research belongs to areas of Volatility, Joel A. Thornton spends his time largely on the problem of Thermal decomposition, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Aqueous solution. His Analytical chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Time of flight and Chemical ionization.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Highly Oxygenated Organic Molecules (HOM) from Gas-Phase Autoxidation Involving Peroxy Radicals: A Key Contributor to Atmospheric Aerosol (129 citations)
  • Monoterpenes are the largest source of summertime organic aerosol in the southeastern United States (70 citations)
  • Secondary organic aerosol reduced by mixture of atmospheric vapours (69 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

His primary areas of study are Aerosol, Environmental chemistry, NOx, Ozone and Atmospheric sciences. His Aerosol research integrates issues from Chemical physics, Radical, Volatility and Diffusion. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Atmosphere, Inorganic sulfate, Organosulfur compounds, Particulates and Nitric acid.

His NOx study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nitrate and Fine particulate. The study incorporates disciplines such as Air quality index and Chloride in addition to Ozone. Within one scientific family, Joel A. Thornton focuses on topics pertaining to Atmospheric chemistry under Atmospheric sciences, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Total organic carbon, Chemical ionization and Time of flight.
