Metal-Organic Liquids Detect Neutrinos

Department: Science & Technology, ACS News

Chemists have developed new metal-organic liquids to help study the chargeless elementary particles known as neutrinos, which are formed by radioactive decay and may provide insight into the fundamental nature of matter and the origin of the universe. Richard L. Hahn, a senior chemist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, described the solutions in a presentation before the Division of Nuclear Chemistry & Technology.

When neutrinos enter a liquid and interact with protons or neutrons, a . . .
