There are more than 300 research news or highlights from various professional journal, magazines, organizations or news papers, including Science, Nature, Nature Chemistry, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Asia Materials, BBC, Scientific American, Chemical and Engineering News, New York Times, Strait Times, A-STAR Research Highlight (8 times), etc.
Here we would like to highlight his recent invention on Intrinsically Colored and Luminescent Silk. After publication in Advanced Materials in 2011, this paper has been highlighted in many scientific publications (e.g. Nature Chemistry, Nature Asia Materials, Materials Today, Chemical & Engineering News, Chemistry World, Future Materials), as well as the mass media (the International Herald Tribune, the Straits Times, Media Corp Channel 8, Channel News Asia, BBC), and popular science magazines in USA/Scientific American, UK/the New Scientist, Germany, France, Australia, Taiwan, Poland, and Spain. BBC has just interviewed on Sept 2. You can find more than 100,000 internet searching results in Google related about the paper in Advanced Materials.
Silk has been a highly prized material since its discovery a few thousand years ago, with a current annual industrial output of approximately USD 30 billion in China alone. In silk industry, the outer layer of silk (sericin) needs to be removed in order to use the core of silk (fibroin) that has excellent mechanical properties combined with luster, smoothness and comfort. To impart color to the finished products, silk fibroin is subjected to the dyeing process including steps to remove excess dye molecules and to restore the properties of silk that has been altered due to the harsh conditions involved in the process. To impart color to the finished products, silk fibroin is subjected to the dyeing process that conventionally requires large amounts of water, energy, additional chemicals, as well as post-processing to restore silk properties and to process the waste water. Using our new invention, we can solve this problem, as described on the next page.
