Idaho State University chemistry professor Dr. Jeffrey Rosentreter has helped developed a new “real-time” method of detecting cyanide in drinking water and other sources, offering numerous advantages over existing technology.
The device was designed for anti-terrorism detection of cyanide and, once it can be mass-produced, it could be put to immediate use by U.S. troops. It will also have applications to monitor cyanide produced by mining and manufacturing operations that annually produce some 1.4 million tons of cyanide worldwide. The new device has both safety and security applications.
