Researchers Develop ‘Special Molecule’ That Can Remove Radioactive Elements From Nuclear Waste

A team of chemists from Indiana University has developed a new chemical principle which could help create specially engineered molecules that extract radioactive elements from nuclear waste. The method which could significantly reduce the volume of these radioactive materials will also be applicable to “molecules created to extract chemical pollutants from water and soil."
