Abstract:

A modern scanning tunneling microscopyatomic force microscopy instrument was purchased. This instrument is allowing physical characterization of nanoscale particles of metal oxides. These particles are known to be effective reagents for the destruction of military toxins as well as chlorocarbons by a process we call destructive adsorption.
