A semiconductor dissolves in vinegar

Создан полупроводник, растворяющийся в уксусе Stanford University has developed an innovative semiconductor consisting of a material soluble in household vinegar. The feedstock for the resulting substance was isolated from dyes intended for tattoos. In addition, chemists synthesized a material capable of dissolving in substances having even lower acidity than ordinary vinegar. The main application of the new material is seen in medicine for the manufacture of short-lived implants. In addition, the novelty can be used to create quickly destroyed information carriers for scouts. One of the main threats to humanity at the present stage of development is a large number of household appliances and equipment that need environmentally friendly disposal. The use of materials soluble in the biological environment will help to partially solve the problem and reduce the toxicity of the planet with harmful substances. And using soluble semiconductors to create implants will reduce the need for additional surgical intervention to remove them. To use soluble conductors as a basis for implants, experiments are now being carried out to prove the harmlessness of this material to a living organism. To date, tests on small animals, laboratory mice, have been completed and tests on larger mammals are ongoing.
