A research study led by Nosang V. Myung, professor and department chair of chemical and environmental engineering in UCR’s Bourns College of Engineering has been named one of the “Top 10 Sustainable Chemistry Papers” in the June 6 edition of Chemical and Engineering News, which is published by the American Chemical Society. The top 10 papers comprise the most-read papers in sustainable or green chemistry from Environmental Science & Technology, Environmental Science & Technology Letters and ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering over the past 12 months.

Titled, “Tailored Synthesis of Photoactive TiO2 Nanofibers and Au/TiO2 Nanofiber Composites: Structure and Reactivity Optimization for Water Treatment Applications,” the paper was published in Environmental Science & Technology and describes the synthesis of nanofibers for water treatment and filtration. The lead author was Michael Nalbandian, who completed the work as a Ph.D. student in Myung’s lab.
