Many of today's technologies, from hybrid car batteries to flat-screen televisions, rely on materials known as rare earth elements (REEs) that are in short supply, but scientists are reporting development of a new method to recycle them from wastewater. The process, which is described in a study in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, could help alleviate economic and environmental pressures facing the REE industry. Zhang Lin and colleagues point out that REEs, such as...

Dysprosium is a chemical element with the symbol Dy and atomic number 66. This rare earth element has a metallic, bright silver luster. Dysprosium is not found freely in nature, but is found in various minerals, especially xenotime. It was first identified in 1886, but its pure form was not isolated until the use of ion exchange instruments were developed in the 1950s. Dysprosium salts are mildly toxic in the liquid state, while solid dysprosium in non-toxic. Dysprosium is soft enough to be...
