A researcher from Amirkabir University of Technology has created domestic air purifier which can clean microbial contaminants from the environment without requiring filters.

According to an ISCA report, Amin Masoumzadeh explained that his research group designed and created an air purifier that uses ozone technology.

Such purifiers (ozone generators) are one of the most common ways to quickly remove airborne contaminants and odors from homes, offices, and even cars. They are designed to create ozone through a simple process that occurs naturally in the atmosphere.

Ozone is simply three oxygen molecules, or “O3.” In the science world, ozone is referred to as “trioxygen”. This third oxygen molecule is unstable and only shares a loose connection with the other two molecules.

Therefore, it will easily attach itself to pollution, especially high-odor pollutants like smoke. It can also attach itself to viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and organic matter. After it attaches to pollutants, the substance is destroyed. The ability to attach to other molecules, such as smoke and odor, gives ozone its ability to clean and deodorize indoor areas quickly.

He declared that these purifiers include cold plasma in their technology so; the ozone is released from the machine into the air. When it hits molecules like mold or smoke, the third oxygen molecule attaches itself to molecules of the pollutant and basically eliminates it.

The research plan, led by Dr. Davood Iraji, faculty member of Amirkabir University of Technology, has been successfully implemented.
