Ion Exchange Resins Expert in Decontamination
An ion exchange resins expert was needed for trade secrets litigation involving technology for water decontamination in nuclear reactors. At issue were trade secrets regarding the formula and manufacturing process of ion exchange resins. The defendant was a manufacturer for the energy and environmental industries, producing water decontamination and purification systems for power plants and waste recycling plants; specifically, ion exchange resins and performance chemicals.
Our client contacted IMS ExpertServices to locate an expert in ion exchange resins to examine the competing products and consult on the likelihood of trade secret misappropriation. The expert was required to have extensive knowledge of chemical cleaning and decontamination processes. Additionally, knowledge of organic chemistry, chemical engineering, and polymers was preferred.
This radiochemistry expert focuses his research on the migration of radiocontaminants and has worked extensively with ion exchange resins. Primarily, he develops methods to gauge and improve the effectiveness of ion exchange resins in removing and retaining radiocontaminants from heavy water. He has been widely published in industry publications regarding water decontamination, groundwater contamination, and radioactive water leachates. He holds several degrees including a Ph.D. in geochemistry and is currently a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at a large international university.IMS Reference #5018353
