The object of this research project is to determine how adding organic compounds during crystal formation affects the physical properties of the ferrihydrite crystals that are formed. Ferrihydrite is a nanomaterial with no bulk counterpart and forms naturally in nature. Through these experiments, we hope to elucidate more details about out how the formation occurs in nature. Once we figure out how the formation occurs, we can manipulate it for various industrial and environmental applications.
