Research & Development

Specialty Areas:

Developing rapid, safe and cost effective chemical processes to modify bio-based polymers and feed stock materials such as vegetable oils, proteins, starches, cellulose, lignin, etc. for controlled and enhanced reactivity.
Synthesizing and developing new bio-based polymers, plastics and elastomers with novel properties.
Developing applications of bio-based materials and plastics for blends, nanocomposites, foams, moldings, films, coatings, adhesive, etc.
Designing and characterizing structure and properties of bio-based materials and developing new analytical techniques for multi-component biomaterials.
Improving the thermo-mechanical and elastic properties of bio-based polymers and elastomers to the level comparable to or better than conventional petroleum-based polymers.
