Crude oil often clogs filters membranes used in the oil and gas industry. To address this problem, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have developed a novel approach, which will prolong the lifetime of key industrial equipment. Much of the work was performed at the Center for Nanoscale Materials, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.

Scientists have developed micron-sized spheres to catch and destroy bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical used to make plastics. While BPA that seeps into food and drink is considered safe in low doses, prolonged exposure is suspected of affecting the health of children and contributing to high blood pressure.
