Scientists have discovered a fireproof property of DNA

fireproof  DNAThe Polytechnic Institute of Turin recently tested in the laboratory of the natural properties of the macromolecule. A team of scientists dissolved the collected DNA in water, then cover this composition cotton cloth. Then they dry it and tried to set fire to the fabric.

A biological material worked exactly as ammonium phosphate – a connection that is often used as a fire-resistant coating. And they are usually protected from fire such polymeric materials, such as polyolefins, polystyrene, spandex, electrical insulation, and many others. Read the rest of this entry »
