BioPristine

Team Members

Alek Zarak (Electrical Engineering)

Ruben Morones (Chemical Engineering)
Our idea is method of bonding chlorine to almost any kind of material, creating a coating that could be kept germ-free for prolonged periods of time. The
technology behind this idea is simple yet effective. It consists of forming a polymer, which is in essence a combination of many small molecules arranged to form a much larger organic molecule. This polymer, which consists of polymerizable acyclic N-halamine, can be attached to an object in a manner similar to painting. It effectively protects the object from harmful germs such as bacteria and yeast. Exposure to a simple halogen light recharges the material’s biocidal qualities, so it can be used for extended periods.
