Goal: Investigate the use of advanced membrane, responsive hydrogel-based, and magnetic nanocomposite-based sustainable technologies to prevent and reduce environmental exposure risks associated with halogenated organic compounds.
Expected Outcomes: Cost-effective technologies for remediation of chemicals, such as TCE, PCE and PCBs. And, superfast sorption of PFAS compounds with responsive polymer materials.
