Development of Microscale Membrane Extraction for trace Monitoring of Pesticides and other Emerging Pollutants in Water

Project: Research project

Project Details


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.
