New spheres trick, trap and terminate water contaminant

Scientists have enhanced micron-sized titanium dioxide particles to trap and destroy BPA, a contaminant in water with health implications. The robust particles can be recharged for reuse in water remediation.  Rice University researchers have enhanced micron-sized titanium dioxide particles to trap and destroy BPA, a water contaminant with health implications. Cyclodextrin molecules on the surface trap BPA, which is then degraded by reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by the light-activated particles.  Read more...
