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