Welcome to the Todd Mlsna Lab
Research interests in the Todd Mlsna group are in the general areas of Analytical and Inorganic Chemistry. Our diverse projects focus on development of biofuels, chemical sensors and environmental monitoring. Our bio-fuel work centers on the development of stable, energy rich fuels using only biomass of a feedstock. Our work with miniature chemical sensors encompasses both basic and applied research with a broad range of applications from environmental monitoring, to health diagnostics, to protecting soldiers on the battlefield. Our work on environmental monitoring focuses on tracking chemicals of emerging concerns including pharmaceuticals, pesticides and toxic metals.
