"We’re looking at a technique that could improve CO2 capture to combat climate change," said researcher Prashant Nagpal
Nanoparticles extracted from sugar could be a low-cost solution for detecting the presence of lead in water
Researchers have developed a way to derive nanoparticles from table sugar and these particles can be used as a sensor for detection of lead in water.
The study, published in the Journal of Chemical Physics, focused on a class of nanoparticles called quantum dots.
The quantum dots are delivered intravenously and some of them leave the bloodstream and cross membranes, entering cancer cells.
