We are excited to share Ri’s first first-author paper! Ri combined suspect screening with adsorption experiments to evaluate the removal of 68 PFAS on five different adsorbents. Read more here to find out what we learned!
We are happy to announce the publication of Casey’s first first-author manuscript in Environmental Science & Technology! Casey designed a study to evaluate the removal of different classes of PFAS by cyclodextrin polymers with different surface charges and by ion exchange resins. Read all about it here!
Happy to share Michael’s latest paper on peptide hydrolysis!
In this study, we used a set of natural peptides to explore the specificity of dissolved extracellular wastewater peptidases to better understand the fate of peptide-based antibiotics during biological wastewater treatment. We discovered specific amino acid residue motifs that were more readily hydrolyzed by extracellular enzymes, which could have implications in the development of sustainable peptide-based antibiotics. Read on to learn more!
The latest from our collaboration with the Dichtel group at Northwestern – cyclodextrin polymers with nitrogen-containing tripodal crosslinkers to evaluate the role of protonated amines in the adsorption of anionic PFASs.
Conclusion: protonated functional groups are useful and important!
