Leaching and Attrition of Layered Double Hydroxide Sorbents for Selenium Oxoanions

Layered double hydroxides (LDH) show promise as a nanomaterial sorbent for selenium in order to prevent environmental concerns of this element, but they can greatly increase alkalinity and concentrations of other elements to impractical levels. The goal is to understand how this is happening and how to remediate this problem. Through testing with various water

Next Generation Composite Polymer Solid Electrolytes

Solid lithium lanthanum zirconate (LLZO) shows to be a promising candidate to replace dangerous liquid electrolytes and increase overall battery properties to meet our increasing need for energy storage. This research focuses on synthesizing LLZO through nano-synthesis methods. This research then extended to implementing the nanoceramic into a polymer composite matrix to synergistically increase Lithium
