We study environmental molecular processes to protect the earths' most valuable resources, air and water. ASU has a strong history in connecting chemistry, biochemistry and geology. We define the materials chemistry of the geosphere, and explore new ways of performing chemical reactions inspired by geomimicry, and how chemistry, biology and geology sustain life on earth, and possibly beyond.
