Electrospinning of polymer nanofibrous membranes for various novel applications: from self-healing to cultural heritage restoration
Abstract of the Seminar
In this review I would present some of the most important and interesting applications of electrospun nanofibers and membranes in various applications and areas. For the past 8 years at advanced materials laboratory (AML) at Monash Malaysia we worked on different postgraduate and industrial projects using electrospining. Some of these applications and studies are:
- Electrospun polyacronitrile membranes as containers in self-healing epoxy composites
- Electropsun polylactic acid nanofibers encapsulated and embedded with nanotubes for bone regeneration applications
- Electrospun polyacronitrile and chitosan membranes for affordable water filtration in rural areas
- Electrospun chitosan/halloysite nanofibers for bone regeneration applications
- Microemulsion Encapsulated into polyacronitrile Halloysite Nanotubes nanofibrous membranes and their Applications for Cleaning of a Marble Surface
About the Speaker - Dr Pooria Pasbakhsh
Dr Pooria Pasbakhsh is an academic at Monash University (Malaysia Campus). He obtained his PhD at University Science Malaysia (Penang) in the area of Halloysite Nanotubes (HNTs).
He has been with Monash University since 2010 and has just been promoted to Associate Professor in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the study of HNTs.
His research interest is in the development of composites reinforced by nanoparticles.
He has authored and co-authored over 80 academic papers in the area of HNT and its applications in composite materials, for biomedical engineering as well as water technology and published a book on ‘Natural Mineral Nanotubes: Properties and Applications’ (Publisher CRC Press).
