We would like to enter as Brazilian partner, obtaining funding through FAPESP (http://www.fapesp.br/14008).
Our lab has many skills in Analytical Chemistry and water analysis. In particular, we seek to combine molecular imprinted polymers with several different types of instrumental techniques.
Moreover, water quality is a problem that affects Brazil, therefore, there may be further investment in good ideas.
