The vast majority of water on Earth is undrinkable, but desalination could be a vital technology to meet the world’s drinking water needs. Now, Korean engineers have developed a new nanofiber membrane that can operate efficiently for long periods.
It can be difficult for people such as army medics, carrying an assortment of bandages in every shape and size. Thanks to recent research, however, they may one day simply be able to spray medication-laced fiber dressings directly onto wounds.
Scientists claim that coating health food ingredients such as vitamins and nutrients in nanofibers, created through a process called electrospinning, can serve to better protect them as they pass through the digestive system.
