An important message about oxygen

Dioxygen (O2) plays an important role in the energy metabolism of living organisms. Free oxygen is produced in the biosphere through photolysis (light-driven oxidation and splitting) of water during photosynthesis in cyanobacteria, green algae, and plants. During oxidative phosphorylation in cellular respiration, oxygen is reduced to water, thus closing the biological water-oxygen redox cycle. (Wikipedia 2016)

Why is this important?

Please don’t turn off the air-conditioning as it is the only source of airflow in the IT room. Ask the library staff to adjust if required, it is difficult to turn back on!
