An article just published in Ohio State News discusses the Badjic lab's development of new particles called "molecular baskets". These baskets have been shown to find simulated nerve agents and swallow them into their "baskets" where they can be safely removed. While the research is still in its beginning stages, they are already starting to capture attention! The department would like to congratuate Jovica Badjic and his lab for their continued effort and innovation.
