Nanostructures Sop Up Radioactive Ions
Titanate nanotubes and nanofibers could offer an inexpensive means for removing radioactive cesium and iodide ions from contaminated water (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI: 10.1002/anie.201103286). These ions are the products of uranium fission, and they can easily dissolve in reactor water during an accident at a nuclear facility. A team led by Huaiyong Zhu of Australia’s . . .
