This project is about development of novel wound dressing materials  and we are  making  cellulose nanofiber hydrogels from wood as raw material.  

Multiscale carbonized lignin nanomaterials with tailored structure for high electrochemical capacitance

The project work focuses on the development of functional nanostructured carbon material with large specific surface area and derived from sustainable materials, mainly lignin. Approaches such as electrospinning, freeze-casting as well as 3D printing can be involved. The possible applications of the carbon material can be electrodes in high-performance energy storage devices, for example, supercapacitors.

Technical objective The project is focused on materials design of biocomposites which are semi-structural, recyclable and/or biodegradable. The term “semi-structural” needs to be defined. If 30wt% glass fiber/polypropylene is selected as the reference material for substitution, it would mean that the modulus should be > 6 GPa and the tensile strength > 85 MPa. In …
