Catalytic metal foams harness sunlight to clean water

A chemical engineer at Bath University has been given a five-year EPSRC Fellowship to develop photocatalytic nanoporous anodic metal foams that can remove micropollutants from water. Professor Davide Mattia (Credit: Bath University) Micropollutants – found in toxic chemicals such as drugs, hormones and pesticides – appear in wastewater in low concentrations, and can eventually work … Continue reading Catalytic metal foams harness sunlight to clean water
