A Team of Scientists Creates Glowing Fingerprint Detection Technology

The liquid contains metal organic framework (MOF) crystals that bind to residue left behind by a fingerprint. Developers hope that this fingerprint detection liquid can be used in situations in which ordinary dusting would not be available.
