Synthesis and modification of Alumina nanofibres and its applications

Huang, Yiming (2013) Synthesis and modification of Alumina nanofibres and its applications. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a forward study of alumina nanofiber material in developing its applications biology field. It demonstrates that by applying proper modification strategy, alumina nanofiber is a promising material in protein purification and enzyme immobilization. The hydrophobic modification has dramatically improved the rejecting of protein molecular in purification system. On the other hand, utilisation of cross-linking agent firmly combined alumina nanofiber and target enzyme for immobilisation purpose. This step of progress could lead to inspiration of alumina nanofiber’s application in various area.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
