Copper iodide nano particles effective against pandemic H1N1 influenza virus

Copper-iodide nano-particles have long-lasting antiviral activity against the H1N1 influenza virus, according to a paper in the February issue of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology in 2009 The copper iodide generates reactive oxygen species which kill viruses by degrading viral proteins. The particles can be applied to products such as filters, face masks, kitchen…

Groundbreaking nano particles could wipe out COVID-19 infections

CORONA VIRUS researchers have proposed attacking the virus responsible for COVID-19 with ultra-small nano particles Chemical engineer Thomas Webster from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, has proposed eradicating the corona virus with nano particles. These microscopic particles would match the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and would be ten thousand times smaller than the width…
