Water contamination by heavy metals is an issue all around the world and specially in areas of low wealth. For this reason, a lot of new research has come up in the last few years regarding affordable and efficient methods for extracting heavy metals from potable water. However, it is also important to develop simple and cheap methods for people to be able to detect heavy metals in potable water without needing a lab.
