Content of research
Cellulose is the most common and abundant bioresources, mainly originating from higher plants. We extract cellulose nanofibers with widths of 3-15 nm from wood pulp, and are currently conducting the development of various cellulose nanofiber-based materials, such as transparent paper, for electronic, catalytic, and thermal applications.
Current Research Programs
- 1. Printed paper electronics using cellulose nanofiber materials
- 2. Bio-based nanofiber materials derived from cellulose, chitin, chitosan and so on.
- 3. Paper reactor for continous-flow chemical manufacturing
- 4. Heat guiding materials by using the thermally conductive nanocelluloses/li>
