Nowadays, the effect of cellphone radiation on human health is a subject of interest and is being studied worldwide. Everyone carries a cellphone, and every wireless handset emits certain radio frequencies. RFs can break down tissue in the body and wreak havoc with DNA.

Large doses of radio waves are believed to cause cancer, leukemia, and other disorders. Many scientific studies have investigated possible health symptoms of cell phone radiation.

Now, scientists have developed a new material that efficiently blocks electromagnetic waves from mobile phones, televisions, microwave ovens, and other appliances.

Scientists from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Seoul and Drexel University in the US developed this material, which is made of MXene.

In material science, MXenes are a class of two-dimensional inorganic compounds made of titanium and carbon. Their single layer is only about one nanometre. These materials consist of a few atom-thick layers of transition metal carbonitride.

Scientists discovered that MXene can block cellphone radiation. It can also block electromagnetic waves from televisions, microwave ovens, and other appliances. According to scientists, the material has an easy process and is almost inexpensive in cost.

Gu Jong-min, the research leader said, “The developed material can be used not only to block electromagnetic waves but for other various purposes.”
