Polymer Nanotrap Incarcerates Mercury
A thiol-modified porous polymer that snatches up mercury(II) like gangbusters has set a new standard for trapping the toxic metal for wastewater treatment and environmental cleanups (Nat. Commun. 2014, DOI: 10.1038/ncomms6537). A research team led by Shengqian Ma of the University of South Florida made the nanotrap by preparing a known porous organic polymer that consists of a three-dimensional . . .
