Use of Soy Proteins or Soy Derivatives and Zero-Valent Iron for Environmental Remediation
SUMMARY Lehigh has developed a novel material for the treatment of contaminated water and soil. The method for the preparation of such materials involves the dispersion of zero-valance nanoscale iron particles and use of either soy protein, soy milk, or other soy derivatives. These particles have large surface areas, giving them increased reactivity...

Rapid Sensing of Toxic Metals with a New Hybrid Inorganic Material (HIM) Through pH Changes
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed a toxic metal detection device for use with potentially contaminated water. The sensor uses hybrid inorganic materials for simple and quick detection of heavy metals. The technology is essential for a number of applications, such as mining frac water, remote testing for poorly accessible regions and is particularly...
