1 CHEM 1A03: Intro. Chemistry I Essential Elements: Chemistry Life & Health Chemistry, Life & Health Ch.8: Electrons in Atoms Department of 1 Chemistry Chemistry that’s out of this world! Life on Mars? Odyssey Mission (Launch 2001): From space mapped the amount/distribution of space , mapped the amount/distribution of elements and minerals that make up the martian surface. Maps of H distribution infer the presence of vast amounts of water ice buried beneath the surface in the polar regions. Department of 2 Chemistry Current: Mars Phoenix Lander Mission (Launch: Aug. 4/07, Landing: May 25/08) Gamma Ray Spectrometer – detects an excited element’s characteristic emission of energy.

4 Sun’s Emission Spectrum Sun (T=6,000K) Department of 7 Chemistry Earth’s Protective Shield: Ozone A. Ozone & UV Exposure UVB radiation (280-320 nm) from the sun is selectively absorbed by O 3 (ozone) in stratosphere Photolysis of O 3 absorbs 90% UV B radiation with peak at about 20km from Earth’s surface Lower O 3 levels increase the transmittance of UV B radiation from the sun to earth Æ Montreal Protocol: 1987 From Sun Department of 8 Chemistry To Earth Surface O 3 (g) O 2 (g) + O (g) Altitude (km) + Heat h ν = 280 – 320 nm Mt. Everest 8.8 km

5 Ozone Depletion & UV Exposure B. Biological Impacts • UV B radiation can ionize biological molecules (DNA, Protein) Chronic exposure to UVB transmission increases chance of skin cancer, cataracts & genetic mutations • Body’s response: produce melanin (dark pigment) to filter UV B radiation. Aromatic Amino Acid in Protein N N NH 2 Aromatic Base in RNA/DNA Department of 9 Chemistry O O - NH 3 + HN Tryptophan (Trp) N N O OH OH HO Adenosine (A) or H UV Exposure & Sunscreen C. Chemistry of Sunscreen • Propose alternative ways to decrease exposure to UV radiation? • Use of sunscreen/cosmetics containing UV absorbing chemicals UV B 2 Major Chemical Sunscreens: Broad spectrum coverage Department of 10 Chemistry UV A λ
