Carnegie Mellon-Developed Chemicals That Break Down Water Contaminants Pass Safety Test

A family of molecules developed at Carnegie Mellon University to break down pollutants in water is one step closer to commercial use. Study results published online in the journal Green Chemistry show that the molecules, which are aimed at removing hazardous endocrine disruptors from water sources, aren’t endocrine disruptors themselves as they proved to be non-toxic to developing zebrafish embryos.
