Guests: Milt Lee, PhD, Professor, Chemistry, Brigham Young University; Mike Alder, Director, BYU Technology Transfer Office Winter is bad air season in a lot of places like the Wasatch Front here in Utah, where the landscape and temperature changes manage to trap pollution from cars and power plants close to the ground. BYU chemists have developed a portable device that air quality monitors could take with them to a location in the community and immediately check to see what pollutants we’re breathing at that moment, in that one spot. The device could also be helpful when there’s a chemical spill – it works with pollutants in both gas and liquid form.
