Nanocoating for Virus Free Surfaces

Nanocoating for Virus Free Surfaces is an effective coating of metal and non-metal surfaces to prevent infection from viruses. The nanocoatings are useful for hospitals and other healthcare facilities, as well as for public locations such as schools, airports, trains, buses, and cruise ships, where the active virus lasted 17 days on surfaces. The coatings contain nanoparticles of safe copper metal ions and carbon dots in a gingerol solution that will be effective for weeks or even months. Coronavirus gets transmitted through droplets and affected surfaces from one person to another. We are developing coatings that will not only be effective against the coronavirus but also against other viruses and bacteria. The anti-viral coatings are based on carbon dots that contain nanoparticles of copper and can be painted or sprayed on surfaces in the form of a gingerol solution.

These Cu nanoparticles, along with virucidal nano-dots, will rupture the virus membrane and deactivate its functioning and replication. Studies show these ions have strong anti-viral effects, which can eradicate virus particles that adhere to the surface. This nanomaterial is stable in gingerol solution, and the coating can remain on the surface for 60 to 90 days.
