Homeland security symposium covers what chemists can do to help protect the nation

NEW YORK Leading experts will focus on how chemists should address current homeland security issues and potential terrorist threats during a presidential symposium at the 226th national meeting of the American Chemical Society. Speakers will discuss the use of nanotechnology to improve sensors and to develop porous silicon "smart dust" detectors, explain the threat posed by "dirty bombs," and cover techniques that have been developed to assess and address threats posed by terrorists against chemical manufacturing facilities. The session will highlight the steps chemists are taking to make chemical plants more secure.
