Iranians Help Produce Cellulose Nanopaper

A nanopaper sensor used in medical and clinical diagnosis systems has been produced by Iranian and Spanish researchers. Iranians Hamed Golmohammadi and Tina Naqdi from Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz and Hossein Yousefi of Gorgan University of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources collaborated with several other researchers in this study. They introduced the bacterial cellulose nanopapers as a biological substrate for the production of optical transparent nanosensors, Mehr News Agency reported. According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, in case the sensors are mass-produced, they can be used in medical and clinical diagnosis systems to detect disease agents and measure chemical and biological parameters. Bacteria cellulose nanopapers have unique properties, including biocompatibility, biodegradability, optical transparency and mechanical and thermal stability. Therefore, these materials have applications in medical technologies, electronic devices, solar cells, membranes, nanocomposites, food industry, medical industry and packaging.
In addition, its reasonable price compared to the majority of transparent substrates used in the production of expensive optical sensors has made the bacterial cellulose nanopaper suitable for use.
