  • First UK study of synthetic chemicals found in food

    The first comprehensive assessment of common synthetic chemicals found in UK foods has been completed by researchers at the University of Birmingham. In the study, nearly 400 food samples were tested for evidence of organophosphate esters (OPEs) – chemicals used as flame retardants in furnishings an more

  • Upcycling biomass waste into Fe single atom catalysts for pollutant control

    Plants contaminated by heavy metals and antibiotic abuse are two major issues currently facing human sustainable development, as they directly affect food security and drinking water safety. Both pollutants are environmentally persistent and toxic, and can cause potential and long-term negative effe more

  • Chemistry discovery could remove micropollutants from environment

    Using a pioneering imaging technique, Cornell University researchers obtained a high-resolution snapshot of how ligands, molecules that bind to other molecules or metals, interact with the surface of nanoparticles. In doing so, they made an unexpected breakthrough discovery. They determined that by more
