Welcome to Clemson Environmental Molecular Science Laboratory (CEMSL) web site. The research group is lead by Dr. Yuji Arai. Our research areas are environmental soil chemistry, low-temperature geochemistry, materials science, environmental chemistry, and molecular environmental toxicology. Our research interest is to understand the molecular level chemical reactions of nutrients, metal(loid)s and radionuclides at the soil mineral-water interface and in aquatic/terrestrial organisms that are responsible for field-scale processes (e.g., nutrient cycling and bioaccumulation). We are especially interested in (a)biotically influenced partitioning (i.e., adsorption, desorption, precipitation, and dissolution) and redox reactions of contaminants at the soil mineral-water interface.
This web-page is intended to provide the information to help current & future group members make sure they have all the necessary information. If you are interested in joining our research group, please contact me via e-mail.
