Research Project: Nanoscale Interactions Between Engineered Nanomaterials and Biochar

Location: Commodity Utilization Research

Project Number: 6435-41000-103-24
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Mar 01, 2012
End Date: Feb 28, 2015

Objective:
The objective of this research is to elucidate fundamental mechanisms of nanoscale interactions between engineered nanomaterials and biochar in soil.

Approach:
Various porisimetry and microscopy techniques will be employed to understand the surface characteristics of biochar. In addition to sorption/desorption/elusion behaviors of nanomaterials with and without soil, plant/worm assays will be conducted.
