Research Introduction

Since the invention of paper approximately 2000 years ago, it has been traditionally used for many purposes, such as writing, printing, and packaging applications, in daily life. The recent trend towards sustainable development has led to a growing emphasis on the active and effective use of renewable resources. Because paper derived from wood cellulose fibers is inexpensive, recyclable, and renewable, the development of new functionalized paper materials can be a promising approach to realize green innovation.

 We aim at functional innovation of paper by structural and material design using paper-specific process and features, such as a papermaking technique, excellent flexibility, ease of chemical modification, interconnected porous fiber-network nano-macro structures, especially for catalytic and electronic applications.
