RESEARCHERS AT QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY HAVE PATENTED A NEW PROCESS THAT ALLOWS ORGANIC COMPOUNDS TO BIND TO METAL SURFACES.

THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY COULD HAVE WIDE-RANGING USES IN THE MARKETPLACE — FROM BETTER RUST PROTECTION ON YOUR CAR …. TO IMPROVING MEDICAL SCANNING EQUIPMENT.
RESEARCHERS SAY THE PROCESS THEY’VE DEVELOPED IS LIKE BINDING VEGETABLE OIL ONTO A METAL SURFACE.
THIS WOULD PROTECT METAL FROM CORROSION, WHILE DECREASING FRICTION.
THE ORGANIC-STICKING TECHNOLOGY IS NOW IN THE PROCESS OF BEING ADVANCED IN THE LABS OF QUEEN’S FOR COMMERCIAL USES.

“We’re also looking at protection of automotive surfaces, for example. You know, if you want to protect something from corrosion. Organic surfaces are very resistant to water – think about oil and water not mixing – so it’s a nice way to prevent corrosion.”
