Trashed LCD TVs Could Fight Harmful Bacteria

June 24, in LCD

While the growing problem on e-waste does include LCD TV sets, it looks like there is a bright side to it after all. This is if the findings from the University of New York in the UK are accurate though. It seems the guys have transformed a chemical compound found in LCD TV sets into an anti-microbial substance which can destroy certain infections like Escherichia and Staphylococcus aureus.

The researchers found that adding silver nanoparticles enhanced the anti-microbial properties of the substance, enabling it to destroy bacterial infections. And all the while we were worried about e-waste. At least now you can rely on something alternative although this doesn’t mean improper disposal of gadgets is off the hook!
