Hi, I'm Kristen Carfang and am interested in learning about more about 
 Engineering , Chemistry, and Nanotechnology. 
 I am currently a student at Clarion University,  
 where I am starting my studies in nanotechnology.  
 A few of the areas I'm currently interested in are;
 the enhancement of food, ways to clean environment(air and water   
 pollution), and the impact on how fuel is used and obtained. 
 So basically how nanotechnology can benefit, the environment
   around us.

Research These are a few articles about the steps being taking, to clean up the contamination in the ground using varying nanoparticle

Nice start on lit review[edit source]

Kristin You may have narrowed your search down too much if there is only one article dealing directly with it -- my guess is, however, there is a lot of papers tangentially related to the topic - using slightly more open search terms will bring them out -- also try some of the University databases here--Joshua 14:23, 1 February 2008 (PST)

Good start[edit source]

Hi Kristen

Good start on the article -- you need a lot more depth -- I also changed the title to fit the naming convention. Try using the REF button to insert your references so your text flows better.
