Studying microfibre release towards improved clothing design
Clothing manufactured from synthetic fabrics such as polyester and nylon can release hundreds of thousands of microfibres to waste water systems when washed in domestic washing machines. Fleece fabrics have been of particular focus, however, fleece clothing can be made from a wide variety of differe...

Biodegradability of Plastics: Challenges and Misconceptions
Plastics are one of the most widely used materials and, in most cases, they are designed to have long life times. Thus, plastics contain a complex blend of stabilizers that prevent them from degrading too quickly. Unfortunately, many of the most advantageous properties of plastics such as their chem...
Do recycled rubber tyres pose a risk for the marine environment? A chemical, physical and effects assessment
Globally, car tyres have been identified as one of the most significant sources of microplastic (MPs) particles to the environment. Due to the large production volumes and their persistent nature, the disposal of used tyres has also been a major challenge in waste management, making tyre recycling a...

Nanoparticle-stabilized microbubbles for multimodal imaging and drug delivery
Microbubbles (MBs) are routinely used as contrast agents for ultrasound imaging. The use of ultrasound in combination with MBs has also attracted attention as a method to enhance drug delivery. We have developed a technology platform incorporating multiple functionalities, including imaging and ther...
