MU study looks at nanotech dangers
A new study has begun to explore the effects that nanotechnology might have on the environment.
Researchers at MU received a $399,506 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to look at how nanomaterials might affect aquatic organisms.
Nanomaterials are extremely small atomic particles, generally between one to 100 nanometers long. There are a billion nanometers in one meter.
The study is being done in conjunction with the USGS Environmental Research Center located on New Haven Road.
