Dr. Jeanne Franz, Professor of Chemistry
I am interested in the environmental chemistry of bodies of water. Current and past projects have included: 1) The effect of different water quality parameters on the rate of pesticide degradation, 2) Assessment of fertilizers on the effectiveness of wastewater treatment plant efficiency, and 3) Suspended solids in Peterson Lake, an engineered backwater lake. E-mail me if you are interested in doing an independent study project with me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some students and their research projects from 2010-2011:
- Megan Carlson Derivatization and Measurement of Triclosan to Determine Extent of Removal by Common Wastewater Treatment Methods
- Jixiao Li The Determination of Alcohol Content in Vanilla Extract
- Laura Senefeld Antibiotics in Commercially vs. Organically Farmed Chicken Eggs
