View Resource No Fairy Tale: Researchers Spin Straw into Gold

The first Web site contains a short news article from the Christian Science Monitor about the work of two University of Texas (UT) researchers who have developed a technique for extracting microscopic gold particles from wheat, alfalfa, or oats. The researchers present their approach as a preferable alternative to the expensive and pollution-generating method commonly used to fabricate gold...
