Environmental Chemistry Research Group

 

Major groups of organics found in PPCPs are carboxylic acids, aldehydes (e.g. formaldehyde), amides, phthalates, and carbines. Although numerous studies have investigated potential health effects of these toxic ingredients, only few have focused on environmental processing of minerals – “aging of minerals”.  Research in our lab is focused on molecular level insights of these complex environmental process to better understand the chemistry and photochemistry of abundant minerals (metal oxides, carbonates, and clays), especially in nano scale, in the presences of PPCPs and their potential impacts on aquatic life.
