In this publication, Changwoo Kim, Seung Soo Lee, Kit Tan Kwan, Junseok Lee, Wenlu Li, Brandon J. Lafferty, Daniel E. Giammar, and John Fortner evaluate surface-functionalized Mn–Fe oxide nanocrystals (NCs) for single- and multi-sorbate scenarios considering As(V), Cr(VI), and U(VI) in varied water chemistries (deionized (DI), ground, and sea water) at pH 7.0.
Graphic showing colloidal stability
October 15, 2020
Changwoo Kim and Professor John Fortner quantify the role of organic coating dynamics, including structure, grafting density, and configuration on the colloidal stability of organic-coated NPs.
Graphic showing the particle and velocity relationship
October 14, 2020
In this publication, Changwoo Kim, Kurt D. Pennell, and Professor John Fortner describe a novel method to delineate and quantify physical processes underpinning particle behavior but also provides direct measurements regarding key factors defining the relationship(s) of flow velocity and particle attachment.
