Details: High entropy/multi component one-dimensional nanostructures are the early phase of the new generation high entropy functional materials. In this direction, in contrast with the existing nanowires, we developed nanocrystalline FeCoNi based five element high entropy/multicomponent alloy nanowires derived through electrochemical approach via aqueous medium.
Details: Flyash is a waste produced by burning of coal, which also possess a serious environmental concern. We have modified flyash to make it superhydrophobic and have used the same to impart water repellency to a fabric.
Details: Recycled polystyrene non-woven microfibrous fabric has been composited with nanofibrous bacterial cellulose. The morphology resembles extracellulose matrix and amphiphility allows transport of media as well as attachment of cells.
Details: Three antifungal essential oils have been co-encapsulated in microcapsules and embedded in a nanofibrous matrix. This enables a slow and controlled release of oils for prolonged activity, while protecting the oils from denaturation.
Details: We created an antimicrobial food packaging by preparing a nanofibrous composite containing silver nanoparticles which showed a sustained activity. The tomatoes were preserved for over 30 day in normal room conditions.
Details: Cellulose nanofibers are pyrolzed to obtained carbon nanofibers. The in situ modification of cellulose nanofibers allows tunability of the electrochemical performance of carbon nanofibers as anodes for batteries.
