Brewing Chemistry - Silicon as a Material Building Block for Influencing Positive Environmental Tran
This event is in the past.
American Chemical Society – Detroit Local Section – Younger Chemists Committee Presents: Silicon as a Material Building Block for Influencing Positive Environmental Transformation with Joseph Furgal, Ph.D.
Dr. Joseph Furgal, assistant professor of chemistry and researcher in the center for photochemical sciences will discuss how the use of silicon-based materials can positively influence earth's environment through various methods. Including, smart sponge pollutant remediation of perfluoroalkyls [PFAS], aromatic hydrocarbons, and nano plastics. Additionally, methods to synthesize silicon-based compounds using greener methods such as silicon computer chips with built in upcycling reuse of consumer and industrial silicone polymer products; and lastly, how coatings derived from silicon can preserve our past for future enjoyment.
