Nanoparticles to aid in environmental remediation

Abstract:
Researchers at Temple University are using protein structures to design and assemble metal oxide nanoparticles that could be used in environmental remediation. The researchers have been exploring how these nanoparticles can be used in environmental remediation, such as helping to transform toxic metals in lakes, rivers or streams, and in groundwater for easier cleanup.
