Iron nanoparticles make single sweep of toxic waste

Abstract:
A "universal elixir" brewed from nanoscale technologies is being promoted as a fast, cost-effective way to clean up hazardous waste.

The slurry would simultaneously neutralize and "fix" in place all known contaminants. (much more on earlier article)
