Electrospun nanoparticle-nanofiber composites for advanced gas sensing

Portable chemical sensors are of critical importance for detection of air pollutants and biomarkers in human breath such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), CO, NO2 and CH4. Low power requirement is essential for long term operations of these mobile sensors providing real-time data about the ambient air quality and health monitoring. Nanotechnology has had significant impacts on sensor technology enabling the development of portable and inexpensive nano-sensors that exhibit operational advantages such as low operation power as well as high …

Cellulose nanofibres for high value consumer products

There is a great degree of concern about the current use of fossil fuel resources to make consumer products. As an example many developing countries, such as Australia, are in the processing of banning single use plastic bags.Meanwhile, there is a resurgence in interest in cellulose as a feedstock due to its environmental sustainability, biodegradability and performance in a range of consumer applications.To this end, further processing of paper pulp produces cellulose nanofibres which are of significant interest in recent …
