Next generation core-shell materials based on biomolecular dual-templating (2015–2019)

This project will discover and develop new methods and knowledge for the precision engineering of nextgeneration core-shell materials using sustainable biomolecular dual-templating processes. This research builds on a recent breakthrough - emulsion and biomimetic dual-templating technology for facile preparation of silica capsules, and will revolutionise current approaches for making core-shell materials. Significant outcomes will be achieved through building fundamental understanding around this breakthrough, including new concepts for hierarchical nanomaterials based on biomolecular design, new molecular and engineering design rules for core-shell materials, and novel materials for applications in sustained release and delivery systems.
