These new cobalt-based oxygen binding crystals look very promising – at the fraction of the size and weight of an oxygen tank, they can bind more oxygen than an oxygen tank and release it as required. And not just once, but repeatedly. This is excellent news for many applications – I can imagine applications not just for diving and submarines but also in space exploration, firefighting, respiritory ailments, and flight safety.
Scientists Just Created Crystals That Make Breathing Underwater A Possibility
Danish scientists are a step closer to helping those suffering from respiratory ailments thanks to a revolutionary new absorption crystal. Working out of the University of Southern Denmark the group has uncovered crystalline materials that are capable of pulling oxygen out of both air and water -which could eventually mark the end of the need […]
