Some pesticides function similarly to the nerve agent sarin, and their ubiquitous use makes them a constant health hazard if unmonitored. Chemists designed a dual-microbe sensor to selectively and sensitively determine when the hazardous chemicals are nearby.
Copper concentration in pesticides can be decreased by combining copper with lignin, a waste product from paper manufacturing.
Can we judge whether crops have pesticide without detecting the pesticide directly? Let’s check out how researchers come up with alternatives for pesticide residue detection!
