A specialized research unit of SUNY Oswego affiliated with the Department of Chemistry.
The Environmental Research Center (ERC) specializes in the analysis of emerging and legacy contaminants, including; Congener-specific polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Organochlorine pesticides, and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in a variety of environmental matrices.
The research center has two environmental chemistry laboratories equipped with research-grade analytical instrumentation for sample preparation and the measurement of organic contaminants in the environment. Some major equipment is listed below.
- 2 Agilent 7890 GC/ECD with PTV for congener-specific PCB analyses.
- Agilent 7890/5975C Inert XL EI/CI MSD with PTV.
- Waters HPLC-GPC preparation system.
- Zymark TurboVap II Workstation.
Recent studies conducted at the ERC have included:
- The Great Lakes Fish Monitoring Program, Lake Ontario Air Deposition Study (LOADS).
- Congener-specific analysis of PCBs in human placental tissues and serum.
- Reductive dechlorination of PCBs in anaerobic bioreactor systems and CDFs.
- Analysis of native Alaskan foods.
- Development of analytical methods for the determination/separation of PCBs/PCTs
in industrially contaminated sediments.
- Utilization of snapping turtles and zebra mussels as environmental monitors.
Opportunities exist for interested faculty and students to become involved in collaborative and multidisciplinary research projects. Highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students are supported with extramural research funding and environmental fellowships. Independent study and Capstone research experiences are also offered for qualified students through the Department of Chemistry.
The ERC is located in 310 Piez Hall.
