[1] In this study, we present the collation and analysis of the gridded land-based dataset of indices of temperature and precipitation extremes: HadEX2. Indices were calculated based on station data using a consistent approach recommended by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices, resulting in the(More)
Methanol is converted to a mixture of hydrocarbons by reaction with zinc iodide at 200 degrees C with one highly branched alkane, 2,2,3-trimethylbutane (triptane), being obtained in surprisingly high selectivity. Mechanistic studies implicate a two-stage process, the first involving heterogeneously catalyzed formation of a carbon-carbon-bonded species,(More)
