A Cotton Mask that disinfects in Sunlight
Cotton masks are quite common, especially homemade masks that match the attire. As such a cotton mask serves the purpose of filtering nanoscale aerosol particles. However, when the mask is removed, there is every chance that viruses and bacteria lingering on the mask can infect another person. Hence researchers at ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Gang Sun, Peixin Tang, Nitin Nitin and their team developed mask with “a new cotton fabric that would release reactive oxygen species (ROS) when exposed to daylight, killing microbes attached to the fabric’s surfaces”, in addition to the mask being safe to use, reusable and washable. The fabric used for the mask is made of rose Bengal dye killed 99.9999% of bacteria. The researcher’s claim that the mask can be hand washed ten times and exposed to the daylight for seven days without losing antimicrobial activity.
No matter what we do, we are on the point of no return, according to a new study
According to a new study, earth will grow warmer even if the zero-emission is implemented to perfection. The research conducted at the BI Norwegian Business School used the ESCIMO climate model that showed the permafrost will continue to melt for centuries even if the greenhouse gas emission is completely stopped. “If we want to stop this melting process we must do something besides – for example, suck CO2 out of the atmosphere and store it underground, and make Earth’s surface brighter.”, says the researchers. However, some scientist disagreed with the studies by saying that the model used was not very complex and it did not accurately reproduce atmospheric and ocean circulation systems.
