In the 1960’s, the rise of industrial-scale chemical compounds made the promise of “better living through chemistry” seem limitless. However, man-made chemicals contributed to pollution and contamination of our air and water. Despite regulation and clean-up, potentially dangerous new “contaminants of emerging concern” are appearing in places that might surprise you – even as innovation makes our lives ever easier. Explore the history and future of contaminants as researchers at ASU investigate this problem and search for practical solutions.
