First UK study of synthetic chemicals found in food

16-Sep-2022

The first comprehensive assessment of common synthetic chemicals found in UK foods has been completed by researchers at the University of Birmingham. In the study, nearly 400 food samples were tested for evidence of organophosphate esters (OPEs) – chemicals used as flame retardants in furnishings ...

Researchers develop plastic film that can kill viruses using room lights

Researchers at Queen’s University Belfast have developed a ground-breaking plastic film that can kill viruses that land on its surface with room light

12-Sep-2022

The self-sterilising film is the first of its kind – it is low cost to produce, can be readily scaled and could be used for disposable aprons, tablecloths, and curtains in hospitals. It is coated with a thin layer of particles that absorb UV light and produce reactive oxygen species – ROS. These ...
