Purdue says nano safeguards in place

Ronald Turco, a professor of agronomy at Purdue University, spends his days in Lilly Hall studying how nano-particles behave in soil. "We're looking to see if they change soil functions," said Turco, whose $2 million study is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Environmental Protection Agency.
