New 2-D Catalyst Fits Two Co-Catalysts on One Nanosheet for Better Water Purification
Christopher Muhich, a Fulton Schools professor of chemical engineering, is among a multi-university team of engineers and scientists to develop a new 2D catalyst that can improve water purification using the disinfection capability of hydrogen peroxide. While the project is still in early stages, researchers foresee providing an environmentally friendly process that increases the efficiency of the water decontamination without the need for additional chemical treatment. The nanotechnology-based effort is being carried out through the Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment, or NEWT, a National Science Foundation center in which ASU is a partner.
