    30 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Sandra Weeks, Laura Arndt, Rodfal Alberto Rodriguez (editor), María Teresa Rivera (editor)

    El suministro de agua contaminada se ha convertido en un problema local en las comunidades de los Estados Unidos y el mundo. Aunque las situaciones dramáticas en Flint, Michigan y Nueva Orleans después del huracán Katrina ocuparon los titulares noticiosos, los vecindarios y...

  2. Nanotratamiento del Agua (Nanotreatment)

    30 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Sandra Weeks, Laura Arndt, Rodfal Alberto Rodriguez (editor), María Teresa Rivera (editor)

    Este módulo se concentra en las tecnologías que utilizan fuerzas e interacciones en la nano escala para tratar el agua. Se le presenta a los estudiantes la oportunidad de seleccionar un problema de tratamiento del agua para determinar qué contaminantes están...

  3. Water Filtration and Purity of Water - Getting Down to the Nanoscale

    13 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: David Mann, NNCI Nano

    This is a three part lesson which begins with familiarizing students with SI prefixes and the nanoscale.  In Lesson 2 students test a local water supply. It is designed to be used as an extension to classroom activities related to treating foul water for consumption. This activity should...

  4. NanoFiltration

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Sandra Weeks, Laura Arndt, Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    Contaminated water supplies have become local problems in communities across the United States and the world. Though dramatic situations in Flint, Michigan, and in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina catch the headlines, neighborhoods, and communities across our country are facing water quality...

  5. NanoTreatment

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Sandra Weeks, Laura Arndt, Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This is a module about nanotechnologies that use forces and interactions to treat water. Learners will select a water treatment problem, determine which contaminants are present in their water, and use the described nanotechnologies and their knowledge of intramolecular forces to identify the...

  6. Manufacturing Fit-for-Purpose Membranes from Nanostructured Polymers

    11 Dec 2019 | | Contributor(s):: William Phillip

    This presentation will discuss how to produce block polymers membranes that contain a high density of well-defined nanoscale pores using facile and scalable techniques. Furthermore, we will describe how the performance profile of the membranes can be tailored to effect selective separations...

  7. William Phillip

    William A. Phillip received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 2004. Based on a strong suggestion from his undergraduate research advisor, Dr. Arvind Varma, Dr....


  8. Critical Measurements to Enable the Use of Polymers in Membranes, Composites, and Impact Mitigation

    05 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher L. Soles

    In this presentation I will present an overview of my research groups activities in these three areas, highlighting the importance of polymer structure and dynamics in establishing the functional properties of the polymers that enable the technology.  For the sake of this presentation, I...

  9. Nanosilver and DBPs

    01 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christina Crawford, Taylor Miller

    Chlorine is a common chemical used to disinfect water. The addition of chlorine provides a benefit by killing pathogenic organisms, but it can be also harmful to humans by producing Disinfectant ByProducts (DBP). In this video, middle school and high school student will learn how...

  10. Water From Urine

    30 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Christina Crawford, Krystal Dunn

    The average person on Earth uses about 80 gallons of water per day, however, in space astronauts only use about 3 gallons of water per day.  Because water is a limited resource in space, NEWT scientists are working on a solution to recycle water from urine using nanotechnology. ...
