Indian scientists have developed a graphene oxide composite paper, loaded with preservatives, that can be used as wrappers to help extend the shelf-life of fruits, stated the Department of Science and Technology.
In the currently used technology, preservatives are adsorbed by the fruit, causing chronic toxicity. In the team’s new paper, the wrapper releases the preservative only when needed. The wrapper can also be reused, which is not possible with the present technology.
