Temple U Researcher Uses Ferritin To Aliquot Iron Nanoparticles for Environmental Study | GenomeWeb

Using ferretin protein to aliquot nano-quantities of iron oxyhydroxide, Temple University nanotechnologist Daniel Strongin is investigating whether nano-amounts of iron can clean up the environment better than bulk iron.

Strongin is one of a handful of researchers who uses proteins to help investigate the properties of nanoparticles — tiny molecules between one and 100 nanometers in size that are of interest because they have properties that are different from their bulk counterparts.
