    Congratulations to M.Sc. student Zijie Wang of Dr. Guojun Liu’s group!

    Under the lab supervision of Ph.D. student Yu Wang, Zijie has fictionalized cotton fabrics so that they can separate oil from oil-in-water emulsion rapidly and cleanly.  This task was achieved at the fabric pore sizes of 200 µm despite the emulsion droplet sizes of 4 µm.  His results have been just published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. and a patent has also been filed on this technology.
