Project description

The ambition in this project is to use green and inexpensive precursors and simple modification procedures by avoiding energy-intensive processes. In addition, the project investigates the degradation pathways and mechanisms for the studied pollutants, as well as the reusability and stability of the developed bionanocomposites. The project is led by Dr. Tiina Leiviskä.
