Research summary

Dispersion of Carbon Nanotubes using Bio-molecules

My research work is based on two main topics namely applications of natural polymers and fibres for engineering/biomedical applications and applications of nanocomposites for high performance engineering applications. I am curretly pursuing the following research projects. 


Cellulose and Chitin Nanocomposite Fibre Spinning for Renewable Composites

Cellulose and chitin two most abundunt natural, renewable and biodegradable polymer. However, they leave a large environmental footprint during their extraction and fibre spinning due to the hazardous solvents used. Since ionic liquids have been reported possessing excellent performances on dissolving natural polmers, we dissolved cellulose ...
