New biodegradable polymer fabricated using guar gum, and chitosan has high potential for packaging material

New Delhi, October 11, 2021: A team of Indian scientists have developed an environmentally friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable polymer using guar gum and chitosan, both of which are polysaccharides extracted from guar beans and shells of crab and shrimps. The fabricated guar gum-chitosan film having high water stability, high mechanical strength, and excellent resistance to harsh […]

New electronic nose with biodegradable polymer and monomer can detect hydrogen sulphide from sewers

New Delhi, April 17, 2021: Scientists have developed an electronic nose with biodegradable polymer and monomer that can detect hydrogen sulphide (H2S), a poisonous, corrosive, and flammable gas produced from swamps and sewers. H2S is the primary gas produced from the microbial breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, and this necessitates easy […]
