1 September — Stockholm (SWE): A team of scientists, based at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has developed a new method for making waterproof paper that is also able to clean itself.

 

The scientists told the Royal Society of Chemistry journal they had grafted chemical compounds on to the fibres in paper to make it water resistant. Water residues then rolled off the paper’s surface simultaneously removing dust and debris.
