Improved Method for Isotope Enrichment Could Secure a Vital Global Commodity

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have devised a new method for enriching a group of the world’s most expensive chemical commodities, stable isotopes, which are vital to medical imaging and nuclear power, as reported this week in the journal <i>Nature Physics.</i> For many isotopes, the new method is cheaper than existing methods. For others, it is more environmentally friendly. […]
