Project Title
The study and evaluation of bismuth(III) phosphinates as antibacterial materials in cellulostic matrices 

Supervisors: Prof. Phil Andrews
                       A/Prof. Warren Batchelor
                       Dr. Melissa Werrett 

Project Description
Bismuth(III) phosphinates have been shown to exhibit antibacterial activity towards multi-drug resistant bacteria. Through incorporation within a cellulosic matrix, the aim is to produce antibacterial materials to combat the increasing resistance seen in bacteria towards current treatments.
