A team of researchers from Immanuel Kant Baltic
Federal University obtained magnetic nanoparticles using sweet flag
(Acorus calamus). Both the roots and the leaves of this plant have
antioxidant, antimicrobial, and insecticide properties. The extract
of sweet flag was used as a non-toxic reagent for the manufacture
of coated particles. The authors of the work also showed the
efficiency of the new nanoparticles against several types of
pathogenic fungi that damage cultivated plants. A technology
developed by the team provides for the manufacture of nanoparticles
from a cheap plant-based raw material and reduces the harmful
effect of reagents on the environment.

    New Fusion

    The New Fusion technology is based on a phenomenon called triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) which is a process in which two triplet excitons annihilate and produce a higher energy singlet exciton.
