Current Research

Investigating soft cellulose nanofibril microcapsules for their (a) mechanical properties using (i) osmotic swelling and (ii) dynamic mechanical analysis methods and (b) understanding permeation, selectivity, and transport of sub-micron particles through the capsule shell

Previous Research

Forward osmosis study employing protein-embedded polyamide membrane hollow fiber module for (i) dewatering of seawater feed employing sea bittern as draw solution and (ii) concentration of sugarcane juice feed using cane molasses as draw solution.
