Chunhui Xiang’s research interests focus on modifying the properties of existing textile products with nanomaterials, i.e. nanofibers, nanopartiles. Her research background includes developing novel nonwoven fabrics from nanofibers and nanocomposites electrospun from renewable and biodegradable polymers. The performance behavior of the nanomaterial modified textile products is investigated to meet the textile target market. The biodegradable and renewable nanofiber non-woven fabrics, with high specific surface area, good strength and flexibility, and high porosity with adjustable pores size, can be used in filtration, drug/agrochemical controlled delivery, seed coating industry.
