Spring ACS Workshop

Standard Methods, Materials, and Databases for Surface Complexation Measurements
Omni San Diego Hotel (Grand Ballroom D)
Wednesday, March 16, 2016
5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
Abstract:  When combined with chemical equilibrium modeling, the measurement of complexation reactions between material surfaces and target chemical species can result in the calculation of discrete reactive surface site concentrations and intrinsic thermodynamic equilibrium constants.  These parameters are of critical importance when modeling and/or predicting chemical processes associated with industrial separations, water treatment and remediation, and the reactive transport of contaminants in natural geochemical systems.  This workshop, sponsored in part by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will explore the need for standardized experimental/modeling methods and standard reference materials for surface complexation measurements, and their capacity to promote the development and availability of internally consistent datasets.  The workshop is free and all are welcome to attend.  Questions and comments can be directed to Tom Duster (thomas.duster@nist.gov).
