Cleaning up cars at atomic level

Abstract:
When Stanford University scientist KJ Cho developed a method to study the qualities of materials at the level of about 30,000 atoms, he had no idea it could help clean up the environment.

By introducing cheaper nanomaterials of similar or even superior emission-reducing qualities to platinum, they could reduce the cost of a catalytic converter by 30 percent -- the devices average $100 to $300 even for cheaper cars -- and help the environment.
