Title:Development of Microscale Membrane Extraction for trace Monitoring of Pesticides and other Emerging Pollutants in Water
Project Type: Research
Start Date: 3/01/2007
End Date: 2/29/2008
Congressional District: 6th
Focus Categories: Methods, Water Quality, Toxic Substances
Keywords: micro-scale membrane extraction, real time water mapping, perfluorooctane sulfonate, perfluorooctanoic acid, sulfamethoxazole, trimethoprim,Clarithromycin, azithromycin, erythromycin, ciprofloxacin
Principal Investigator: Mitra, Somenath; Hylton, Kamilah (New Jersey Institute of Technology)

Abstract: This study will focus on the development of a low cost, simple technique that can detect low concentrations of PFOS, PFOA, sulfamethoxazole, trimethoprim, clarithromycin, azithromycin, erythromycin and ciprofloxacin in water in a rapid, cost effective manner. The use of a highly selective membrane liquid and trapping solution is being proposed to achieve high enrichment of these compounds leading to shorter analysis times and lower detection limits. Specific objectives of the proposed work are as follows: 1. Develop micro-scale membrane extraction as a simple cost-effective tool for highenrichment of emerging pollutants to enable ppb level detection. 2.Develop an on-line technique for real-time water monitoring.
