CatClo, is the one touted to claim a space under the spotlight, and is now in the development phase as a laundry additive which can make T-shirts remove up to 5 grams of nitrogen dioxide per day from the air. Scientists say that it is equivalent to the amount the average family car emits.

The laundry additive actually gives a coating to the clothes of titanium oxide which upon exposure to daylight attracts nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxides are a significant source of pollution from the air.

Scientists say that it is enough to use CatClo once per clothing. This could be a big boon to boosting health in society. People suffering from asthma and other respiratory problems can also be benefitted by this discovery.
