Research Statement
The major topics of our present research work are the preparation of biopolymer (Bacterial cellulose (BC)), and Biofuels (Bio-ethanol). We focus on the strategies of enhanced BC productions for its commercializations and preparing BC composites with polymeric and nanomaterial for advanced biomedical applications. The practical biomedical applications of such biocomposites are planned in upcoming task. Bioethanol is prepared from waste materials in ecofriendly way though specifically designed fermenters.
