      Research Topics, Overview of the research

      • Research Topics

        •Polymer based self-assembly and nanotechnology.
        •Membrane separation processes and energy storage
        •Bacterial and in-vitro enzymatic generation of polymers and energy.
        •Bionanotechnology - Functional synthetic/natural hybrid membranes.
        •Cell mechanics – Cell scaffold materials design
      • Overview of the research

        The Sivaniah group manipulates materials with synthetic and biological approaches whilst seeking to establish a viable interface between the two.

        In recent years we have delivered notable biomaterials research papers on intelligent scaffolds to interrogate the factors that influence cell migration. On example is well-defined scaffolds to determine the role of 3-D architectures on cell migration (Biomaterials 31, 2201‒2208, 2010) . Another example is the controlled generation of spatially variant stiffness in 2D gels to interrogate cell mechanotaxis (Advanced Materials 24, 6059‒6064, 2012). Moreover our group studies the generation of bioplastics using bacterial and enzymatic tools.. Through such works, we will channel our experiences to develop practical principles that can support our vision of a grand challenge of generating industrially relevant processes via bionanotechnology.

        Although soft-matter bionanotechnology forms one key part of our research, our approach is to mix both synthetic and biosynthetic methods of materials development (with a current primary focus in achieving energy efficiency and environmental targets in separation technology). Examples include the report of a transformative platform technology for generating nanoporous materials (Nature Materials 11, 53‒57, 2012) and high performance microporous membranes for the separation of important environmental gases.
