Also reducing condensation in airplane cabins and enabling certain medical tests without the need for high tech laboratoriesscience: scientists found out that raspberry particles act like the surface of some rose petals. "The newly discovered material uses raspberry particles -- so-called because of their appearance -- which can trap tiny water droplets and prevent them from rolling off surfaces, even when that surface is turned upside down," said Dr Andrew Telford from the University's School of Chemistry. The reason for this amazing fascinating structure, is due to the special structure of a rose petals surface. A research team replicate the rose petal assembling raspberry particles, using spherical micro- and nanoparticles.The results of this where that the water droplets bead up when the are put onto the raspberry film, not being able to drip down from it. this could be used for many things such as preventing condesation issues in airplanes. But this also has an innumerable amount of potential for allot of applications.
