FAST-ACT (Image 2) Artist's interpretation of FAST-ACT absorbing and destroying toxins. When sprayed from a canister or spread over a spill, the material grabs onto and rapidly breaks apart such deadly materials as VX nerve gas and sulfuric acid. FAST-ACT was developed by Kansas State University chemist Kenneth Klabunde, with support from the National Science Foundation. For more information, see the NSF Discovery story "Nano-Engineered Powders Tackle Toxic Chemicals" from April 28, 2005. (Date of Image: 2005) [One of 2 related images. See Next Image.]
