A new nanomaterial promises to clean up potentially nasty mercury spills that result from broken fluorescent light bulbs.
The technology is timely as people are encouraged to switch from incandescent light globes to the energy-saving fluorescent form of lighting.
Research led by Professor Robert Hurt of Brown University has created a product that absorbs mercury 70 times better than the best available technology.
The results were presented at a recent meeting of the American Chemical Society.
The new sorbent, made of selenium nanoparticles, could help clean up after breakages in the home, or during shipping or recycling.
