  • Technique for arsenic-free water developed

    A novel approach to arsenic removal could lead to a quick and inexpensive purification of drinking water in developing countries. Previous research demonstrated that arsenic can be removed from water using activated carbon or iron minerals, such as magnetite nanocrystals. However, such particles are too small to be effective in flowing water and they quickly degrade when exposed to the ...
