Characterizing Metal Nanoparticles for Water Purification: Electron Microscopy in Action

It is estimated that more than 1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water. Many researchers are working toward solving this problem. Ideally, they will develop solutions that are inexpensive, safe, and require low to no power consumption. For example, Theresa Dankovich and Derek Gray have been researching the use of silver […]
