Functional materials/surfaces, bioabsorbable materials, and natural minerals
Formulation, separation, processing, characterization, and application
We search for new biodegradable alloys that could revolutionize cardiovascular stent industry.
We invented new inexpensive antibacterial material and explore its potential applications in water filtration, food packaging, and many others.
|RHX Ceramic Dating
We study the rates of rehydration and rehydroxylation processes for fired clay-based ceramics as a tool for dating ceramic archeological artifacts.
We architecture nanostructures, nanotubes, and molecular layers to control wetting or other properties of surfaces.
|Mineral and Materials Processing
We have a long tradition of development and testing physical separation technologies for selective recovery of minerals from ores, plastics from waste, and cellulose fibers from wastepaper.
