“Whole new technologies are being created for life and in a covid situation. And the first one we wanted to report is a biodegradable composite material with an antibacterial effect. This is the Emanuel Institute of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences,” he said.
According to Ivliev, this is “material for life.” It is proposed to make dishes and household items from it, for example. They have a higher level of antibacterial efficacy compared to previously known materials with a lower content of antimicrobial agent.
“It is also characterized by higher elasticity and a degree of biodegradation – the ability to destroy pathogenic biofilms,” the head of Rospatent added.
