O mém projektu

T. vaporariorum same like B. tabaci suck herbal juices causing fading of leaves, necrosis. Leaves become yellow; they lose turgor and fall of the leaves. The main objective of this project is to test nanocomposite materials and their toxicity to pathogens as well as the plants themselves. During the project, metal nanoparticles (Zn, Se, Cd, Ti,Au) and also carbon nanoparticles (graphene) will be tested. In addition to pure nanoparticles, nanoparticles encapsulated in the algae will be used too.
