Nanomaterial that can detect, neutralize explosives
Washington: Scientists have developed a two-in-one material from metal oxide nanoparticles — so small that 50,000 could fit across the width of a single human hair — that can detect and neutralize explosives.The material changes colour in the presence of certain explosives, alerting emergency responders to the threat.



It can also be sprayed onto bombs or suspicious packages to inactivate certain explosives, according to study leader Allen Apblett.
"This stuff is going to be used anywhere terrorist explosives are, says Apblett, who reported at the ACS`` 241st National Meeting & Exposition in Anaheim, CA.
