Abstract:

The goal was to understand the surface chemistry of nanoscale metallic and metal oxide particles as they react with chlorocarbons, organophosphorous compounds, organosulfur compounds, sulfur dioxide, and other toxic materials. This work has led us to propose and try to develop such nanoparticles a for use in high temperature processes as Destructive Adsorbents DAT - destructive adsorbent technology for bulk quantities of toxic substances, b for room temperature processes for protection of soldiers from warfare agents, and c for use in ground water purification, Metal Assisted Remediation Technology - MART and d for air filtrationpurification.
