Russian scientists developed a nanomembrane for air purifiers that kills coronavirus

Scientists at the Photonics and Quantum Materials Center of Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) have developed a nanomembrane capable of killing viruses dangerous to humans, including coronavirus, reports "Izvestia" referring to Skoltech.

The nanomembrane is designed for use in filters of air purifiers. As told by the developers, the invention is universal and combines two processes: purification and disinfection. The disinfection process takes place by heating the membrane to 300-400 degrees Celsius in the open air, and for the elimination of a virus is enough and 100-120 degrees.

The scientists claim that there is no equivalent in the world. It can be used in hospitals, airplanes, electronic manufacturing facilities, public transport - anywhere where there is a large congestion of people. In the future, the developers believe, it can be integrated into a standard room air conditioner.
