How Ancient Egypt’s first synthetic pigment could be set to enjoy a renaissance as a high-tech nanomaterial

An ancient bright blue pigment first used 5,000 years ago is giving modern scientists clues toward the development of new nanomaterials that could be the basis for futuristic gadgets.

Hieroglyphics from the Tomb of Nebamun: The wall paintings in this tomb use Egyptian blue, considered humanity’s first synthetic pigment, which new research shows could be used in new nanomaterials

Egyptian blue, one of the first pigments known to man, has potential uses in state-of-the-art medical imaging devices, television remote controls and other telecommunications technology, new research claims.

Regarded as humanity’s first synthetic pigment, it was used in paintings on tombs, statues, papyrii and other objects throughout the ancient Mediterranean world.
