Other Superfund Research Programs

The UK-SRC RTC has collaborated in the past with several other SRP's including Brown, the University of California at  Davis, Dartmouth, Duke, Iowa, Louisiana State University, University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.  These collaborations have resulted in joint research projects, invited guest speakers as part of our monthly seminar series, sample analyses, joint programming for federal government audiences, and conference collaborations.

UC Davis: Nanoparticle Research

Dr. Bhattacharyya and Dr. Ormsbee have collaborated with Dr. David Sedlak with the UC Davis Superfund Center on research related to groundwater remediation methods involving iron oxide nanoparticles. This research has resulted in the following publications:

Gui, M., Smuleac, V., Ormsbee, L., Sedlak, D., and Bhattacharyya, D. "Iron Oxide Nanoparticle Synthesis in Aqueous and Membrane Systems for Oxidative Degradation of Tricholoroethylene from Water", Journal of Nanoparticle Research, April 2012

Gui M., Ormsbee L. E., Sedlak D. L., Bhattacharyya D., “Complete Detoxification of PCBs by Iron Based Nanostructured Membranes,” NIEHS-SRP Annual Meeting, Raleigh, NC, October 2012.
