Our purpose is to develop and apply practical and economical methods based on photochemical, sonochemical, or electrochemical processes to treat chemical and biological pollutants in water. Therefore, researching viability of technologies in a given context, assessing the mechanisms and routes of degradation of pollutants, identifying the by-products of degradation, and assessing the biodegradability and toxicity degree of waters before, during, and after treatment are of particular interest to us.
Research Areas and Topics
- Environmental Electrochemistry.
- Advanced Oxidation Photochemical Processes.
