To Mask or Not to Mask: Study Provides Mechanism to Test Materials (Stony Brook University)

Stony Brook University: To Mask or Not to Mask: Study Provides Mechanism to Test Materials. ” In a study that used inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry to mimic respiratory droplets that can carry viruses, researchers demonstrated a mechanism that enables multiple mask materials to be protective. Led by Stony Brook University Professor Amy Marschilok, PhD, the study findings suggest that adsorptivity of mask materials is an important feature in providing protection from viruses such as SARS-CoV-2. The paper is published in Applied Materials & Interfaces, a journal of the American Chemical Society.”
