StudiesPrecourt Institute for Energy Studies Investigates Sunlight-Activated Nontoxic Disinfecting Powder
New nontoxic powder uses sunlight to quickly disinfect ... Precourt Institute for Energy
The Precourt Institute for Energy Studies at Stanford University is exploring a new way to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. The institute is investigating the use of sunlight-activated, nontoxic disinfecting powder to help prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
The powder is made up of titanium dioxide nanoparticles, which are activated by sunlight. When exposed to ultraviolet light, the particles create a reaction that produces a powerful oxidant, which can destroy many types of bacteria and viruses. The powder is applied to surfaces and left to dry. Once activated by sunlight, the powder can remain active for up to 24 hours, providing long-term protection against germs and viruses.
The Precourt Institute for Energy Studies is currently testing the powder in a variety of settings, including hospitals, schools, and other public spaces. The research team is looking at how effective the powder is in reducing the spread of infectious diseases and how it can be used in combination with other disinfection methods. The team is also exploring how the powder could be used to reduce the need for chemical disinfectants, which can be toxic and have a negative environmental impact.
The research team believes that the powder could be an effective tool for preventing the spread of infectious diseases. If successful, it could provide a safe, cost-effective way to reduce the spread of germs and viruses in public spaces. The team is hopeful that their research will lead to a new way to keep people safe from infectious diseases.
