- Developing nanomaterials as sensors for food safety. Electrospun nanofabrics have very large surface area to volume ratio and excellent pore-interconnectivity. It is easy to incorporate the sensing and reacting compounds in the nanostructure to achieve the quickly starting signaling pathway and fast treatment.
- Developing ‘smart’ biomaterials for functional food, which allow the controlled release of several incorporated compounds in the desired sequence to achieve synergistic functionalities.
- Developing environmentally compatible materials with high performance for replacement of petroleum based plastics and foams, and enabling a better understanding of their microstructure and bulk features (mechanical strength, permeability, degradation, etc.).
