Even hospitals (and geriatric care facilities) and school buildings can be sound-proofed. An environment-friendly way to sound-proof the walls is to use diatoms. Diatoms are unicellular microbes that have a cell wall. The cell wall has two parts or frustules. Frustules make two overlapping halves (the epitheca and the hypotheca). The presence of numerous tiny pores in the frustules connects the protoplast of the cell to the environment. The cell wall contains silica, which creates patterns of minute perforations and striations. Around 90% of the cell wall is silica. Shells of diatoms are, therefore, highly resistant to decomposition. It serves as porous acoustic material, that is, a solid material with cavities to facilitate the entry of sound waves and their absorption with very little reflection.
