Compound stops Listeria spread during food processing
Cobalt-doped titanium-dioxide is active in both light and dark to prevent bacterial growth.
Researchers at the University of Houston have discovered a new compound, cobalt-doped titanium-dioxide (CoO-TiO2), that could halt the reproduction of Listeria monocytogenes and other bacteria in food products.
“The compound that we used in this study is basically a heavy metal in combination with the titanium-dioxide. It…
