Comments Off on Paper Accepted to Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research
The desired grafting reaction of diallyl oxalate to nylon substrate.
On December 4th, 2015, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research published the paper, “Uranium Removal from Seawater by Means of Polyamide 6 Fibers Directly Grafted with Diallyl Oxalate through a Single-Step, Solvent-Free Irradiation Process,” as part of a special issue on the extraction of uranium from seawater. The paper was authored by Travis C. Dietz, Claire E. Tomaszewski, Zois Tsinas, Dianne Poster, Aaron Barkatt, Mohammad Adel-Hadadi, Fred B. Bateman, Lonnie T. Cumberland, Erich Schneider, Karen Gaskell, Jay LaVerne, and Mohamad Al-Sheikhly. The paper can be found online at the following link: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.iecr.5b03401

The Laboratory for Radiation and Polymer Science is led by Professor Mohamad Al-Sheikhly at the University of Maryland, College Park. Our group is dedicated to exploring the effects of radiation on materials and the study of polymers. In order to perform this research we work in close collaboration with a number of other institutions including The Catholic University of America, The National Institute of Standards and Technology, The University of Texas, Austin, among others. Please see our research and publications page for more information about our group and its current research projects.
