Iron's desire to mingle means chemistry's right to clean up

Abstract:
Tiny particles of ultra pure iron, each as small as a billionth of a metre, are being developed by Sydney researchers as a new weapon to fight pollution. If it works, nanoparticles of iron could be used to sweep clean contaminated industrial sites, filter agricultural chemicals from water running off farms, and even recycle drinking water for cities. The extraordinary potential of iron nanoparticles, said David Garman, executive director of the Co-operative Research Centre for Waste Management, "has got us extremely excited".
