Taiwanese achieve a breakthrough in nanotechnology
Accidents resulting from carbon monoxide poisoning could be effectively prevented by a catalyst recently invented in Taiwan, scientists at National Taiwan University (NTU) said yesterday. Potential applications of the new catalyst include the production of masks used in fire accidents and the improvement of fuel cells. In addition, Mou Chung-yuan said, the catalyst, which involves gold-silver bimetallic nanoparticles, can be used in the pre-production of fuel cells. Although gold is among the most stable, incorruptible substances known to mankind, recent nanotechnology research showed that the element works very well as a catalyst.
