Dr. Ed Rosenberg from the University of Montana will present a seminar titled "Silica Polyamine Composites (SPC): new materials for metal recovery, remediation and catalysis."
A novel class of solid state adsorbents has been developed at UM. The materials have been vetted in the lab over twenty years of research and have been manufactured and used on the industrial scale. The first generation materials were based on amorphous silica micro particles (150-300 microns) and more recent versions used silica nano particles and core-shell magnetite-silica nano particles. Applications of each type will be presented with a discussion of advantages and disadvantages of each type of SPC along with comparisons with other commercially available ion exchange materials.
