Can we find more benign nanomaterials?

(University of Iowa) University of Iowa chemist Sara Mason has won a grant to access a supercomputer network funded by the US National Science Foundation. Mason's group will use its time to better define the atom-to-atom interactions of various nanoparticles, hoping to learn more about the particles' effects on energy, the environment, and human health.
