Plant-based superglue

Date: 27 February 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • Researchers have demonstrated that ultrasmall plant-derived crystals can be developed into a super-glue, an advance that may lead to eco-friendly and cost-effective adhesives.
  • A single drop of the "eco" glue has enough strength to hold up to 90 kilogramme (kg) weight, but can still be easily removed by the touch of a finger, as needed.
  • The researchers said the new glue may increase the reusability of valuable structural and decorative elements, provide new solutions for packaging applications, and lead to the development of greener adhesive solutions.

  • A team of researchers is working to come up with a power plant that would have the ability to arrest the carbon dioxide that it emits, rather than releasing the toxic gas in the open. 
  • The researchers have discovered metal carbide nanoparticles which can turn the CO2 emissions into fuel. 
  • This will lead to mass-production of the particle at a very effective cost and have the slightest impact on the atmosphere. This will also help in combatting the greenhouse emissions.
