Smart Disinfectants: Cleaning for COVID

Prof. Shady Farah’s lab

A team led by Professor Shady Farah, of the Wolfson Faculty of Chemical Engineering, is developing disinfectant polymer materials with strong antiviral properties for the protection of surfaces where COVID-19 can linger. The polymers are highly stable macro-molecules designed to have long-lasting disinfecting qualities. The antiviral polymers can be used in hospitals, schools, transportation systems, homes, and more, giving an extra layer of protection against COVID-19.
