Senior Science Category, Winner - A Novel, Photocatalytic, Lead-Sequestering Bioplastic for Sustainable Water Purification

The aim of this project was to synthesise a novel, photocatalytic, lead-sequestering bioplastic for sustainable water purification. The bioplastic developed in this study is easily synthesizable from readily available resources, thus opening numerous possibilities for sustainable, multimodal and cost-effective environmental remediation and water purification.
