  • Magnetic nanoparticles with ionic liquids for water purification

    In many parts of the world, access to clean drinking water is far from certain. Filtration of large volumes of water, however, is slow and impractical. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have introduced a new water purification method based on magnetic nanoparticles coated with a so-called more

  • Lots of lead in the water? Maybe manganese is to blame

    Manganese is not a particularly toxic mineral. In fact, people need a little in their diets to remain healthy. Research at Washington University in St. Louis has shown however, that in conjunction with certain other chemicals, naturally occurring manganese can lead to big changes in the water in lea more

  • A carbon neutral solution for desalination?

    Water shortages are hitting some areas of the world hard, and with increasing global temperatures, more regions may be experiencing drought conditions. Countries such as Saudi Arabia rely on desalination plants to provide drinking water to their residents, producing 5 million cubic meters of desalin more

How Much Water Can Kill You?

You may have heard of deadly poisons like arsenic, cyanide and even the devilishly hard to detect polonium 210. But did you know even drinking water could kill you? We had Deborah Blum, Ph.D., author of the totally awesome book “The Poisoners Handbook,” explain how H2O can be deadly in the right ... more

Microbots zoom around water, destroying bacteria

One day, the tiny robot you see here could help clean up contaminated water. In places where potable sources are scarce, they can destroy disease-causing bacteria in its path and unlike conventional disinfectants, the microbots can be removed easily with a magnet. more

Infographics Drinking Water

Fluoride & Water Fluoridation

This graphic is the first in a series I’m hoping to make on chemicals with potentially undeserved reputations. In it, I’ll look at the evidence and research on each, and try to come to some kind of rational conclusion as to whether or not their bad reputation amongst the general public is deserved. more

The Chemistry Behind Your Home’s Water Supply

We take for granted the water that comes out of the taps in our home when we turn them on – but a lot of work goes into getting it there. Chemistry, too, has a hand in making sure that the water is safe to drink. Here, we take a look at the water treatment process, and in particular the chemicals us more

The Chemistry of Limescale

Limescale is a substance you’ve undoubtedly encountered, be it clogging up your kettle, or building  up on your bathroom surfaces. But how does it get there in the first place, and how do limescale removers work to get rid of it? Those are the questions this graphic aims to answer. more

  • Polar and a potential drinking water hazard

    In Germany, drinking water supplies are plentiful and generally of a high quality. Drinking water is in Germany most commonly produced from groundwater (69.6 %), with a further 12.4 % being taken from lakes and dam reservoirs. The proportion of drinking water processed from bank filtration is about 7.8 %. more
