From Liquid To Gel: A New Test for Lead in Paint

A new molecular gel recipe developed at the University of Michigan by Anne McNeil, Arthur F Thurnau Professor of Macromolecular Science, and is at the core of a prototype for a more accurate lead paint test.

The new test is more clear and accurate than its counterparts. It consists of a vial that holds paint thinner and a sprinkling of certain salts that, when combined with the right concentration of lead, form a gel.
