A team of scientists has discovered a simple, low-energy way to break apart one of the largest groups of ‘forever chemicals’, nefarious pollutants that have been linked to environmental harm and human health concerns. While practical applications are still a way off, scientists are in awe of the new technique’s potential. In detailed simulations, PFAS
