Several members of the Swette Center just published "Buffer pKa and Transport Govern the Concentration Overpotential in Electrochemical Oxygen Reduction at Neutral pH" in ChemElectroChem. Dr. Sudeep Popat, Dongwon Ki, Michelle Young, Dr. Bruce Rittmann and Dr. Cesar Torres published the paper which demonstrates that cathode overpotentials are heavily influenced by the type of buffer used at the cathode and the buffers' diffusion properties.
Dr. Bruce Rittmann is a contributing author to the aritcle, "Internal loop photo-biodegradation reactor used for accelerated quinoline degradation and mineralization," just published in Biodegradation. The article explores the coupling of UV photocatalysis and biofilm degradation to remove quinoline from wastewater.
"Growth of Desulfovibrio vulgaris When Respiring U(VI) and Characterization of Biogenic Uraninite," authored Dr. Chen Zhou and Dr. Bruce Rittmann, has been published in Environmental Science & Technology. The article provides insights into the uraninite utilization and UO2 production by microorganisms.
Dr. Aura Ontiveros-Valencia and Devyn Fajardo-Williams are featured in an article on the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering's website. The article discusses their awards received at Battelle's The Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds conference in Monterey, Calif. in May. Check it out here!
