Polymer/Graphene interactions

In this project, sustainable biomass-derived materials will be used for the fabrication of graphene-based nanocomposites. The main goal is to find a cost-effective solution for the growing issue of agricultural byproducts on one hand and the environmental concerns around polymeric materials on the other hand. Moreover, the role of graphene nanosheets in enhancing the compatibility in polymeric sustainable composite systems is the main goal of this project.
