The Tratnyek/Johnson Research Group's scope includes a wide range of oxidation-reduction reactions that occur in the environment, and the contribution of these reactions to the fate of pollutants. In most of our work, the focus is on pathways, kinetics, mechanisms, and other fundamental, molecular aspects of environmental chemistry. The goal is to understand these redox processes at a process level, and to use this knowledge to develop deterministic models of environmental systems and remediation technologies.
