(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The carbon-based material known as graphene could help with air quality control – researchers with nanoscience institute CRANN recently noted, according to a report from Silicon Republic.
CRANN, based in Dublin, Ireland, has worked to develop a sensor powered from graphene.
The air quality control solution could prove especially useful in the area of car manufacturing which is commonly plagued by exhaust fumes, smog, dust, odors and more.
In addition to that, the researchers also believe that graphene could help protect against unsafe drinking water, thus detecting parasites with its sensor-like capabilities.
Just last week, the University of Manchester put forward an idea that a graphene-based material could be used to coat homes to power appliances.
