Protein fibre powder

dataset
posted on 2024-05-17, 03:18 authored by Xungai Wang, Takuya Tsuzuki
Soft viscoelastic fibres, which are very difficult to grind, can be processed to produce ultrafine particles. This work has created knowledge about new applications of these natural structural proteins. The high reactivity generated through creation of large surface area has been used to design advanced devices and applications. For example particles have been studied for separation of harmful ions from waste water and applied to develop porous composite materials to grow bones to repair critical bone defects.
