I'm just too excited not to share this! We have been working on an acne treatment product concept for the International Genetically Engineere…
An ionic liquid is a versatile substance. It can be turned into fabric or used as a replacement for microplastics in shower gels, toothpaste and face washes. As a glueless glue, it sticks wooden pieces tightly together. “There’s no join between the pieces, they have become part of each other”, says professor Ilkka Kilpeläinen, one of the researchers studying ionic liquid.
Efficiency, environmental sustainability, lack of toxins and the potential for recycling have made the ionic liquids developed by Professor Ilkka Kilpeläinen and his colleagues a tempting target for the commercial sector. In principle, it should be possible to replace plastic with cellulose in almost all cases.
Nanomaterials may have adverse effects on our health. They have an ability to bypass physical and chemical barriers in the human body and induce a condition similar to allergic airway inflammation, proves Marit Ilves’s research. Engineered nanomaterials are used for example in light-weight sports equipment, sunscreens, food packaging and antimicrobial textiles.
