Originally developed 'for detecting' air pollutants, a technique called proton-induced X-ray emission, which can quickly analyze the chemical elements in almost any substance without destorying it, is finding uses in medicine, archaelogy, and criminology.
Can we re-write the portion in the quotes above as 'to detect' . i believe the technique was developed to detect air pollutants - intent is shown. Are both the constructions correct in this case?
Thanks in advance!
Yes, 'to detect' will also work grammatically and logically
