Rice University study to track nanomaterials’ path

By / October 21, 2008

Rice University is undertaking a new study, funded by the National Science Foundation, that will track “tagged nanoparticles” as they travel through the environment. The purpose of the study, which focuses on fullerenes, is to learn how these nanoparticles impact the environment and natural systems, according to a university press release. Rice’s research team will be jointly headed…
