Carbon Particles Grab Radioactive Elements From Water

Scientists have developed oxidized carbon particles that extract radioactive metals, such as cesium and strontium, from water. They said the materials may help purify contaminated waters stored after the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident and also can trap common radioactive elements found in waterfloods from oil extraction, such as uranium, thorium, and radium,
