Research Interests:

  • The search for cheap, economically and environmentally friendly water filters (biosorbents) for metal ions removal in aqueous systems.
  • The study of complexes formed by metal ions in dilute aqueous solutions containing biologically or environmentally important ligands. In biological and natural water systems which contain both biomolecules and metal ions a study of the thermodynamics of their interactions is clearly an essential step in understanding their role, made complicated by the complexity of the system.
  • Biomass as a source of renewable energy.
