Researchers Aim To Build A Dust Library

Chemistry researchers were testing a new sensor when it got clogged with dust, they found they were able to measure the composition of single dust particles and managed to isolate and identify 63 particles in one room. The most common ingredients of the particles were organic matter and quartz with small amounts of man-made chemicals from air pollution, fertilisers and construction materials also found. The team from Ohio State University hope to build a library of common dust components. The analysis of dust particles could be useful in astronomy, geology, environmental science, and atmospheric science.
