Researchers determine the molecular structure of alpha-pinene, a compound produced by pine trees that’s important for air quality and climate — ScienceDaily

The fresh, unmistakable scent of a pine forest comes from a medley of chemicals produced by its trees. Researchers have now, for the first time, accurately determined the chemical structure of one of these compounds in its gas phase, a molecule called alpha-pinene, which is also produced by tropical forests. The new analysis can help […]
