|Mon 4:30 PM 04/15
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.
