Nanotoxicity project wins international research competition

Abstract:
ingyuan Luo of Chandler, Ariz. was named the U.S. winner of the 2007 Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) - the most prestigious international competition for water-related research - during a ceremony this afternoon at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Ariz.

The student's work, "Toxicity and Bioaccumulation of Nanomaterials in Aquatic Species" sought to learn more about the toxicity of nanoparticles by testing small carbon particles (fullerenes) and nano-zinc oxide particles on two different aquatic species (green algae and water fleas). Luo's project was selected from more than 40 state SJWP winners at the national competition held in Phoenix, June 21-23.
