RADICAL is committed to Open Access research and is taking part in a European Commission pilot on  Open Access to Research Data

All publications from the RADICAL project are freely accessible and published as open access articles at either gold or green standard. Our research publications and data are stored in an open-access  data repository on Zenodo to enable future researchers to access, exploit, reproduce and disseminate our data. This repository is validated as Open Access by OpenAIRE, with an associated   OpenAIRE project page.

Stay tuned for our first publications and data releases.


A selection of materials and atmospheric chemistry research which has shaped our project proposal:

  • Role of atmospheric radicals on air quality and climate:
  • Silicon nanowires as sensors in liquid and gas environments:
  • Junctionless Nanowire Transistors (JNTs):
  • First attempts at detecting atmospheric radicals with silicon JNTs:
  • Role of radicals in atmospheric weathering:
  • Electronic noses to detect volatile organic compounds and biological components:
