Nanomaterial and Arsenic Accumulation in Rice

Rice plants were exposed to Nano copper oxide and arsenic over a 12 week time interval. Nanoparticle dissolution and size distributions are being studies as are copper and arsenic accumulation into rice and other plant parts are being determined by ICP-MS.

Factors controlling flocculation in industrial wastewater treatment basins

Waster water treatment systems depend heavily on sorption of pollutants to solids that then flocculate. Many factors contribute to proper flocculation processes. We are investigating biotic and abiotic factors that may contribute to flocculation in and effort to develop metrics for early warning of impairment in the function of industrial wastewater treatment systems.
