Research captures and separates important toxic air pollutant
Led by scientists at The University of Manchester , a series of new stable, porous materials that capture and separate benzene have been developed. Benzene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) and is an important feedstock for the production of many fine chemicals, including cyclohexane. But, it also poses a serious health threat to humans when it escapes into the air and is thus regarded as an important air pollutant.

Public awareness of ’nuclear winter’ too low given current risks, argues expert
Survey study of awareness in UK and US populations also shows that brief exposure to latest data on -nuclear winter- deepens doubts over nuclear retaliation. Ideas of nuclear winter are predominantly a lingering cultural memory, as if it is the stuff of history, rather than a horribly contemporary risk Paul Ingram There is a lack of awareness among UK and US populations of -nuclear winter-, the potential for catastrophic long-term environmental consequences from any exchange of nuclear warheads.
