Unique Interface and Unexpected Behavior Help Explain How Heavy Metals Act

Department of Energy highlights the recent work of Will and Ahmet:

Refining platinum, plutonium, or certain other metals often depends on how the metal behaves at liquid interfaces. The challenge? Scientists have limited ways to analyze the details of liquid interfaces. Now, researchers described in significant detail how water molecules surround a platinum-based ion. Their description includes an unexpectedly complex structure that forms on the liquid’s surface. Read more…
