Webinar with DB: Functionalized Membranes: Water Detoxification to Mask Development 

Last month, UK Alumni Professor Dibakar Bhattacharyya ("DB") announced he had the concept and the means to develop a medical face mask that could capture and deactivate the COVID-19 virus on contact. Now, DB has received a Rapid Response Research Grant (RAPID) to make such masks reality. During the webinar DB will discuss how surface functionalization of membranes allow degradation or capture of toxic pollutants beyond reverse osmosis, and extension to membrane media mask for potential coronavirus deactivation.
