ChE Seminar Series Presents: Umit Ozkan, Chair & University Distinguished Professor Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Ohio State University Abstract:  Groundwater contamination by halogenated compounds such as trichloroethylene (TCE) is an environmental concern due to their high level of toxicity and their potential impact on drinking water. Hydrogenation of chlorinated compounds offers an efficient and cost-effective way of decontaminating groundwater since it eliminates the chlorinated compounds by catalytically converting them to hydrocarbons and hydrogen chloride. Although promising conversions have…
