My daughter is a freshman at the local Acadamy of Science and
Technology, an academically selective high school in our area. She is
working on a project for which she needs to find some "first hand"
research material in the form of journal articles or the like.
Briefly, her project has to do with the
toxicity of residue from various commonly used dyes (as in the dye in
fabric) when the fabric samples are exposed to a variety of environments.
After exposure over time she will compare the growth rate of bacterial
cultures in the residue of her samples.
I also see this as an opportunity to demonstrate the use and value (I
hope) of the internet.
If any of you can direct her to sources that might be relevant regarding
dyes, their breakdown, their toxicity, or anything else that seems
relevant it would be most appreciated.
E-mail to jrr at usis.com would be best, but I'll monitor this newsgroup for
a while, as well.
