Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark have developed a material, which can detect nearby explosives and light up with a fluorescent glow, warning people of their presence. The material is a supramolecular polymers containing TNDCF. Sniffer dogs are currently used in bomb-detection because of their ability to smell very small amounts of explosive substances. However, this puts them in danger during such excursions. We have already seen drones used for fires in high rise buildings, in order to reduce the risk to firefighters. This material is another example of tech being used to reduce the danger to humans and…
