    • Imagine preserving the colour and shape of a flower for nearly 15 years! A team of researchers at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) museology department claims to have developed a technique that can do just that.
    • 'Our technique involves procedural treatment of flowers and leaves with certain chemicals, including copper sulphate, priopionic acid at a specific temperature that checks de-oxidation in flower cells and also drastically retards activities responsible for their degradation,' associate professor Abdul Raheem K. told reporters.
