Researchers are often finding new ways to use substances found in natural products in innovative ways. Springwise has highlighted such innovations as leather made from palm leaves and packaging material based on plant matter in the past. Such diverse uses for seemingly innocuous materials demonstrates the potential scope for further sustainable discoveries. Indeed, now scientists from the University of South Australia (UniSA) have developed nanoparticles from the peel of green mango fruit that could help to reduce oil contamination. Oil contamination in soil can be a real problem for farming, rural communities, and any other organisms that are in frequent…
