The textile industry is the second largest polluter of clean water sources. Once released through polluted effluent, toxic textile dyes exert deleterious effects on the environment. We will explore what makes textile dyes toxic to humans and how we can used chemistry to remediate textile dye pollution. 

Dr. Amanda Oldacre is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at St. Lawrence University. She received her PhD in Chemistry from the University at Buffalo. She teaches general chemistry, environmental chemistry and toxicology, and inorganic chemistry, as well as conducting research on the degradation of environmental pollutants.
