Chemistry Professor Awarded Research Grant from EPA

Chemistry professor Francis Webster was recently awarded $14,917 from the Environmental Protection Agency for his research study "Lessons from Nature: Synthetic Humic Acid Materials for Improved Water Purification."

Webster's project will focus on the development of an inexpensive, multi-functional absorbent material that will improve existing sand filtration technology to better remove a wide range of water contaminants, including arsenic, heavy metals, and organic contaminants.
