<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Krista Carlson

Single-Use N95 masks are being produced every day but can not keep up with the current demand. This project focuses on the synthesis of xerogels and understanding the interactions between the functional groups of our chemicals and porogen.This understanding will help us analyze the microstructures of xerogels and create a filter for N95 masks.
