University students of the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Cnyn) of the UNAM Campus Ensenada are developing a project with which the restoration of historical monuments and archaeological remains will be less complex.

An organic paint mixed with different concentrations of antimicrobial nanomaterials was created in collaboration and used in specific rocks for the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

"Due to the climate of the area where the ruins or historical monuments are, a wear and tear is generated, because the rocks serve as a substrate for the colonization of microorganisms," explained Cnyn researcher Alejandro Huerta.

This project will rescue the history of the most important areas of our country.
