Environmental Chemistry

Degree Sought: MS
Advisor(s): Dibble

Undergraduate Study: Le Moyne College (Chemistry)

Graduate Research Topic
First-ever analytical detection of atmospheric mercury compounds that form upon the bromine-initiated oxidation of mercury (i.e. HgBrNO2, HgBrOH, etc.). The goal is to formulate a method for analytically detecting these compounds and to provide analytical data supporting their existence. This would hopefully facilitate further study of these compounds and provide a means for detecting them in the atmosphere.
