Chemistry professor discovers color sensor compound for anions

27 agosto 2015

A chemistry professor has uncovered a major development in the study of anions, negatively-charged molecules such as chloride, bromide and nitrate, which have strategic roles within the human body. These molecules can also act as pollutants, some of which are vital to our health whilst others might actually harm us. The chemistry behind the detection of anions is still in its infancy and an easy, reliable and robust method of detection has eluded chemists… until now.
