Combined theoretical and experimental approach identifies ideal nerve gas capture agent

Scientists working in Australia, Poland and the USA have come up with a combined theoretical and experimental approach for screening candidate materials that could be used to capture nerve gas agents. They conclude that the ideal material contains slit-shaped pores of around 0.5 nm width.

Their PCCP paper was highlighted on the nanowerk website. Read the article today:
