Abstract:

The objective of this STTR Phase I proposal is to develop new generation nanocrystalline materials which would be superior to surface modified activated carbon in terms of adsorption capacity and selectivity towards chemical agents and very importantly are expected to have unique capabilities of destructive adsorption. NanoScale Materials Inc. will utilize the nanocrystalline materials developed at Kansas State University and follow with characterization, adsorption capacity and reactivity studies. The synthesis method proposed has great potential for developing new generation smart adsorbents, which could possess extraordinary physical and chemical properties. The chemical testing methodologies proposed will address the adsorption capacity, destructive adsorption and the rate of decomposition of chemical warfare agent simulants. The research and development carried out in this project will identify improved synthesis methods for new generation nanocrystalline materials and demonstrate the feasibility to adapt these technologies to provide enhanced protection against CB agents.
