Methanol Antidote: NUST MISIS Scientists Develop a Technology to Neutralize Leakages in Chemical Industries

Methanol Antidote

An international research team from NUST MISIS, Queensland University of Technology (Australia), and the National Institute for Materials Science (Tsukuba, Japan) has discovered an innovative catalyst made from nanoparticles of boron nitride and silver that can decompose toxic methanol into simple substances — carbon dioxide and water. The research results have been published in Catalysis Science&Technology.
