Project abstract

Although coronaviruses are relatively easy to destroy, using simple disinfectants, it’s practically impossible to ensure surface disinfection at all times. After disinfection, surfaces might still be contaminated again. A smart “self-desinfectant” coating able to neutralize viral particules quickly is a much safer solution . Surfaces in the SNS institutions and public locations can be directly painted with this coating, reducing spread of the virus and reducing costs to sanitize the surfaces.
