Project Title
Development of super-hydrophobic packaging materials based on paper and other cellulosic substrates

Supervisors: A/Prof. Warren Batchelor and Professor Wei Shen


Project Description
My project is to investigate and engineer super hydrophobic packaging materials based on paper and other cellulosic substrates. The aim of this project is to develop new engineering approaches to fabricate and characterize super hydrophobic packaging materials and to utilise conventional papermaking materials and coating technologies to engineer super hydrophobic paper and board and to investigate other possible surface chemistry, such as: nano silica.

Education

Bachelor & Master of Pulp and Paper Engineering, Tianjin University of Science & Technology


Research Interests: Super-hydrophobic and super oleophilic paper
