MASc Oral Exam | Polymeric Materials for Detection of Chemical Warfare Agents, by Bhoomi MavaniExport this event to calendar

Friday, November 26, 2021 — 10:00 AM EST

Bhoomi Mavani, supervised by Professor Penlidis will complete her MASc oral exam on November 26th.

Abstract:

Polymeric sensing materials for toxic gas analytes in ppm quantities find applications in occupational health, industrial environments and finally, for chemical warfare agent detection. My MASc research focuses on the detection of aldehydes, which act as surrogate gases for toxic agents.

Polymeric materials such as undoped and doped polyaniline,poly(2,5-dimethylaniline) and other derivatives were synthesized and tested for their sorption characteristics (sensitivity, selectivity and stability) using a highly specialized gas chromatograph at room temperature.
