Title: The use of silver nanoparticles for the recovery of uranium from seawater by means of biofouling mitigation

Abstract

Research currently being carried out by a consortium of national laboratory and university partners is leading to the development of advanced adsorbent materials suitable for the industrial-scale recovery of the essentially limitless supply of uranium naturally contained within the worlds oceans.
