An antipolution polymer strip (APPS) was designed using a cellulose strip (8 × 3 cm) coated with disinfectant polymer resin followed by impregnation with transitional metals (100 μm each). The present studies focused primarily on protection of animals, especially humans, from carbon monoxide (CO) present in the atmosphere because of incomplete combustion of fuel from motor vehicles. Diffusion of atmospheric CO gas causes air pollution. Human blood absorbs CO from the atmosphere, resulting in breathing difficulty and various other ailments. The investigation confirmed that APPS adsorbs CO, thereby providing some protection for living beings. © 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 91: 678–685, 2004
