Advanced Cellulose / Nano cellulose-based Materials
This area focusses on the development and production of cellulose-based materials for advanced applications. Cellulose is a non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible polymeric material. Various modifications through chemical the alteration, mechanical-chemical treatments as well as regeneration the technique can be done to expand the application of cellulose by modifying its characteristic such as solubility, hydrophilicity, thermal and chemical stability. Advance cellulose-based materials are applicable in pharmaceutical dan biomedical application, thermoelectric sensors, as well as energy storage devices.
