The rise of industrial-scale chemical compounds has helped increase our quality of life in substantial ways. In the 1960's, the promise of "better living through chemistry" made benefits of these new substances seem limitless. However, man-made chemicals have also contributed to pollution and contamination of our air and water. Despite efforts such as the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, dangerous chemicals still persist in places that might surprise you. Researchers at ASU are studying this problem and finding solutions.
