Methanol Reactions May Form Interstellar Hydrocarbons
The radiation-induced conversion of methanol may be an important pathway for the production of hydrocarbons in the interstellar environment, according to a new study (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.6b00343). University of Southern California chemistry professor George A. Olah, who won the 1994 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and colleagues proposed this reaction pathway, noting that methanol is more . . .
