Environmental Chemistry Research Center

Severe environmental pollution in major cities and the adverse effects which these pollutants have on the health, social, and even the economic life of society led to the foundation of the Environmental Chemistry Research Center in 2006. The Environmental Chemistry Research Center aims at conducting scientific, practical and specialized research projects in environmental fields to fulfil the following objectives:

  • To develop new analytical methods for sensitive and selective measurement of different types of chemical compounds in the environment
  • To devise, develop, and standardize the methods of measuring pollutants and methods of modifying the chemical processes for pollution degradation
  • To assess the effects of pollutants

Environmental Chemistry Research Center also investigates chemicals and their processes in the environment. In doing so, Environmental Chemistry Research Center benefits from the following facilities/equipment

  • PH meter
  • Ultrasonic bath
  • Mg digital scale
  • SAMA electro-analyzer
  • Planar graph
  • Computational calculator

Regarding the above-mentioned objectives, the Environmental Chemistry Research Center carries out the following activities:

  • Conducting research projects related to qualitative identification and quantification of industrial, domestic and agricultural chemical contaminants by advanced methods
  • Investigating the sources of chemical contaminants in soil, water, and atmosphere
  • Setting up research projects on pollutants degradations
  • Substituting materials and manufacturing techniques to reduce pollution
  • Supporting MA and PhD theses related to environmental studies on chemical contaminants
  • Collaborating in major environmental projects of the country
  • Providing consultation services in chemical environmental contaminants issues More
