Dr. Dennis G. Peters
Department of Chemistry, Indiana University, Bloomington
This seminar will begin with a survey of various methodologies employed for studies in the area of environmental electrochemistry. Then three different categories of environmental pollutants will be considered. First, strategies for electrochemical remediation of freons (chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs) will be discussed, with reference to 1,2,2-trichloro-1,1,2-trifluoroethane (CFC-113). Second, complete electrochemical dechlorination of DDT at a silver cathode will be described. Third, efforts to achieve electrochemical debromination of a flame retardant (decabromodiphenyl ether) will be presented. Finally, a short summary of future directions for our research will be offered.
