Research interest

We would like to propose new processes for producing medically available materials and skincare products with environmentally benign and economically feasible manners. Below are examples of outputs in this project. Throughout this work, we aim to produce materials that have high functionalities and bioactivity.

1) Biomass liquefaction / conversion of thermally-stable organic compounds for recovering;
 (1) bio-active water-solubles
 (2) medically available functional compounds
 (3) cellulose fiber

2) Metal/biopolymer nanohybrid materials preparation

3) Quick and selective degradation of thermally-stable wastewater pollutant compounds.
