Science prof explores water decontamination

Campus News | Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Mahmood Karimi Abdolmaleki, annual contract faculty in the Biological and Physical Sciences Department at Columbus State, recently published two journal research papers on his work in collaboration with the Department of Food Science at Cornell University. 

Water contamination by toxic heavy metal ions such as Cd(II) is becoming a major environmental problem. In his research, Abdolmaleki synthesized and characterized a novel composite, which helped remove excessive Cd(II) ions from water.

The result of the research is published in the Journal of Applied Surface Science. Abdolmaleki is also collaborating with Cornell University on a platinum-based sensor that can detect toxic gases, such as methanol.
