Slide 1

Examination of Environmental Processes at the Molecular Level: Heavy Metal Interactions with Biomaterials Isai T. Urasa, P.I. Division of Chemistry Hampton University Isai.urasa@hamptonu.edu

Slide 2

Scope An investigation of interfacial and cell associations that impact the - Form - Mobility - Lability - Bio-accessibility, and - Toxic impacts of overwhelming metals. The objective of the examination is to make new information, new innovations, and new procedures that can be connected in natural remediation. The program has four subprojects:

Slide 3

Sub-Project 1: Environmental Bacteriology – Dr. Abiodun Adibi, Co-PI Project Goals Characterize and Identify Bacterial Isolates From: Extreme situations pop lake hot spring/lake Craney Island Dredges Explore the Utilization of the Isolates in bioremediation

Slide 4

Extremophiles East African Soda-Lake: Preliminary reviews - Have four segregates - Characterized - Electron microscopy - Biolog Microstation

Slide 5

Extremophiles (contd) Future Research Bacteria people group (surface/subsurface) - Isolate & recognize 16S rRNA quality section DNA sequencing - Degradation of squanders - Bioremediation of overwhelming metal

Slide 6

Craney Island Project Craney Island Project Objective: - think about & portray bacterial comm - Study corruption of petroleum items coming about because of transportation exercises in sound range

Slide 7

Potential Bioremediation Isolate Antimicrobial delivering Air Isolate Characterized & distinguished - Has one of a kind state & cell attributes Future venture - Use in Bioremediation of substantial metal sullying

Slide 8

Sub-Project 2: Heavy Metal cooperations with bio-solids – Dr. Isai T. Urasa, Co-PI This venture is centered around researching the association of substantial metals with waste water slime. It looks to illustrate The Mechanisms included Role of microorganisms Possible application in remediation

Slide 9

Sub-Project 3: Mixed-stage connections with Clays – Dr. Wing H. Leung, Co-PI The target of this venture is to make strong stages with multi-functionalities for use in portraying blended contaminants. The attention is on Modified earth surfaces and portrayal of these surfaces for Immobilization of natural and inorganic contaminants

Slide 10

Sub-Project 4: Plant Accumulation of Heavy Metals – Dr. Barbara Shipes, Co-PI This venture is centered around Use of more elevated amount plants (e.g., Phragmites communis) in substantial metal take-up Study of the components required in overwhelming metal transport, and Application of the procedure in remediation
