First cover article for biomaterials research student Xu
Publication date: 16 August 2016
A major part of UCL MechEng PhD student Zewen Xu's work attempts the novel making of antimicrobial fibre mats. A paper on this research features on the front cover of the journal Macromolecular Materials & Engineering (August 2016 issue). Xu invents a new environmentally-friendly manufacturing route for the production of fibres without using solvents. The fibres have high antibacterial activity and are also proven useful in tissue engineering.
