NSF funds effort to market UT Arlington arsenic analyzer
Date:6/11/2014

such as UT Arlington we are fortunate to have great minds like Dr. Dasgupta and Dr. Das and solid relationships with private businesses like Chipotle that can help see this process through."

Dasgupta's detector is based on the intense chemiluminescence, a light resulting from a chemical reaction, which occurs during the gas phase reaction of the arsenic compound arsine and ozone. The detector uses a graphite cathode and electrical power that can be provided by a rechargeable battery. Results can show arsenic contamination to sub-part per billion levels without using the toxic chemicals employed in other methods.

Dasgupta's detector research was one of less than 30 chemistry research projects in the U.S. designated as an "Exemplar of Excellence" by the NSF's 2010 Chemistry Committee of Visitors.

Dasgupta was born in India and has family connections to Bangladesh one of the countries where arsenic contamination has been most devastating.

"I still feel umbilical connections to that part of the world," Dasgupta said. "Whatever I can do to improve things there is merely an effort to pay back an infinitesimal amount of what I owe".

UT Arlington Research Institute, or UTARI, is in Fort Worth and works with scientists on the University's main campus to identify projects with commercial applications. Das said UTARI will construct a prototype of Dasgupta's concept that can be used for field work. Another important component will be the ability to differentiate between types of arsenic, one of which is more harmful than the other.

The additional funding for the project was awarded by the NSF's Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research Technology Translation program. The 18-month grant began June 1.

"This partnership demonstrates how University researchers can work together with industry to get their technology into the hands of those that can benefit," said Evans, a UT Arlington alumnus whose
