Wood and Bionanocomposites

Published: 9 March 2011

Our research focuses on the development of new materials from renewable resources towards state-of-the-art applications with excellent properties and novel functionalities.

Advanced materials that can be extracted from renewable resources, such as cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and chitin, provide tremendous possibilities in the development of new sustainable products for environmentally friendly applications. The research scope of our group includes energy-efficient isolation of renewable nanomaterials, large-scale manufacturing bionanocomposites, and synthesizing different types of green carbon materials from lignin. The potential of these developed materials for diverse applications are also investigated, such as biomedical, advanced electronics, high-performance constructions, packaging, energy storage, membrane filtration and gas adsorption.
