This research will integrate macroscopic experimental studies, molecular-scale computational studies, and surface complexation models to provide a comprehensive view of the properties of nanoparticle-solution interfacial reactions in the environment.
Results of potentiometric measurements of mineral surface charge and specific ion adsorption, x-ray and neutron scattering experiments, and various molecular modeling approaches are being analyzed in terms of multisite complexation and classical Stern models for the oxide surfaces.
The objectives of this project are to characterize the binding of a representative PAH compound (pyrene) to a set of biochars and the effects of these biochars on PAH bioavailability.
