Sonochemical Desorption of Contaminant Mixtures from Sediment

Objectives:  The purpose of this project is to investigate the application of ultrasound to sediment polluted with a mixture of inorganic and/or organic contaminants. The specific, the goals of this research are:  1) to determine the ability of sonochemical techniques to treat a series of metals and organic contaminants with different binding strengths to model sediment particles; 2) to demonstrate the combined degradation of an organic and desorption and recovery of a metal using freeze-dried Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cells; and 3) to identify key design variables in the sonochemical remediation of sediments contaminated by a mixture of contaminants.
