    Abstract: The far ultraviolet rays are harmful to human health, particularly for their mutagenic effects; it can cause skin cancer, cataracts, photochemical pollution. In the future, chemists plan to use it as weapons for the destruction of objects. Therefore, we should meet this future challenge by scientific means in order to snuff out its far-ultraviolet ...

    Abstract: Food packages and kitchen utensils made of thermoplastic are very popular due to their low production costs. However, thermoplastic is easily degraded at high temperatures and has low mechanical properties. When degraded, thermoplastic produces carcinogenic monomers that can contaminate food. Thus, natural fiber-based composites are introduced. Mos... Show More
