Current research includes development of electrodialysis systems optimized for the processing of small samples.   With this system we achieve dissolved organic matter recoveries averaging 70%.

Electrodialysis System developed for desalting 1-10 liter samples



Composite average Fluorescence excitation emission matrices normalized to their respective maximums of all Skidaway dock seawater samples processed with ED only; (a) initial subsample, (b) final subsample. These show that recovered dissolved organic matter is nearly identical in composition to that in the original seawater.
