A portable device to measure photocatalytic activity of materials

Scientists at the CSIC have developed a device called “pholouring” to instantly measure the photo-catalytic activity of materials. The device detects the photo-catalytic activity through probes and color indicators which are in contact with the analysed material. Virtually any material, either solid, liquid or a solution, can be tested.

Non-toxic antimicrobial zinc oxide microparticles

Scientists at the CSIC have developed zinc oxide microstructures which have a very high antimicrobial activity, compared to the commercial nanoparticles. The particles obtained by the CSIC scientists have low toxicity, as they release low levels of toxic ions and reactive oxygen species. They can be applied for the elimination inhibition of microorganisms growing.
