About the Project

Silk stirrers and silk ‘rockets’ have been produced using reactive inkjet printing. The purpose of this PhD topic is to investigate the degree of porosity that the silk structures contain. Are advantages conferred due to the porosity? Can the degree of porosity be controlled/tailored? Can the silk structures be used in catalysis or as delivery agents because of the porosity?
