New Study on Methane Nano-Bubble Formation during Hydrate Decomposition

New Study on Methane Nano-Bubble Formation during Hydrate Decomposition

Like the carbon dioxide in a fizzing glass of soda, most bubbles of gas in a liquid don't last long. But nanobubbles persist. These bubbles are thousands of times smaller than the tip of a pencil lead -- so small they are invisible even under most optical microscopes -- and their stability makes them useful in a variety of applications, from targeted drug delivery to water treatment procedures.
