Manage the Nitrogen Cycle

Nitrogen is an important element - the most abundant constituent of the atmosphere. It is also one of the essential elements for the growth of plants and animals. Nitrogen oxides are involved in environmental problems, such as acid rain, global warming, and urban smog. Thus, it is important to understand how reactions of the various nitrogen compounds are interrelated. William Trogler, a professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is an expert on the dynamic environmental exchange of nitrogen between the atmosphere, land masses. and oceans.
