Nanotechnology for Removing Arsenic from Drinking Water

In March 2010, researchers from Rice University in Houston traveled to to Guanajuato, Mexico, to conduct field tests on a new nanotechnology for removing arsenic from drinking water. The system uses nanoscale magnetite, or nanorust. The tests are some of the first that attempt to move nanotechnology beyond the laboratory and into the real world. The ongoing research by Rice's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) is funded by the National Science Foundation.
