Detect and degrade PFAS with greener nanocatalysts

9 April 2024

Join us for a presentation featuring Dr. Omowunmi 'Wunmi' Sadik, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Science at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, as she explores the detection and degradation of PFAS. This keynote presentation, originally showcased at the SelectScience® Analytical Summit 2024, delves into the emerging need for sustainable materials and the shift towards utilizing renewable resource-based precursor materials with a reduced carbon footprint compared to traditional petroleum-based materials. Dr. Sadik discusses sustainable nano-chemistry, renewable feedstocks, nano-empowered catalytic mechanisms for PFAS, the presence of PFAS in the environment, various PFAS remediation techniques, and the use of bimetallic nanomaterials for PFOA degradation.
