Sustainable Chemistry and Environmental Project

The sustainable chemistry and environment project at Department of Chemistry, University of Zambia, started in 2011 with support from ISP. The research group consists of the whole Department of Chemistry at University of Zambia, and is coordinated by Dr Onesmus Munyati.

Objectives

The overall objective of the group is to prepare, characterize and study relationships of nano-structure of multiphase conducting polymers particles for detection of organic chemical pollutants in the environment. Many industrial activities in mining, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and others introduce organic pollutants into the environment. Many of these pollutants have well documented health effects. It is therefore desirable to monitor their entry and persistence in the environment.
