Description of Work:

Objectives:

To improve the understanding of the drivers of biofuel research, policy and agricultural adoption in Australia and China.

Description of work:

Objectives:

We will use state of the art theoretical methods to study the microscopic structure of nanoparticle/polymer mixtures. These systems are important for many applications in science engineering and medicine. Specific applications include: self-healing materials; detection methods for security applications; drug release; quantum dots etc.

Brief outline of the proposed research project

There are several projects in desalination and water treatment. Each project is directly linked to commercial applications.
