Nanoparticles Decontaminate Tainted Drinks - Molecular Matters

Michael Edmonds Apr 30, 2012

Researchers at Oklahoma State University have developed nanoparticle materials that can remove a range of contaminants from liquids including milk and juice. Such materials could provide a vital resource following disasters such as the breakdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant last year. One of the major environmental contaminants following Fukushima was radioactive strontium. Radioactive strontium readily accumulates in humans through … Read More
