Title: Colorimetric and electrical sensors for fumigants and toxicants
Research on development of highly sensitive and selective personal-use colorimetric and electrical sensors for fumigants has made great progresses in recent years. Paper-like colorimetric sensors of methyl bromide, methyl iodide, and 1, 3-dichloropropene, chloropicrin and methyl isothiocyanate, and detoxifying colorimetric sensors for alkylating fumigants were developed. This presentation will discuss the chemistry and materials employed in achieving the goals.
Dr. Gang Sun received his bachelor and master degrees in Fiber and Polymer Engineering from Donghua University in China and Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Auburn University. He joined the faculty of Textiles and Clothing in 1995, which has recently merged to the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering. He is a member of Agricultural and Environmental Chemistry. Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biological System Engineering, Forensic Science, and Textile graduate groups. His research areas are personal protective technologies, biological and chemical protective materials, and highly sensitive sensors based on fibrous materials.
