The objective of this project is to develop new functional biomaterials with controlled release properties useful for enhancing food safety and quality. A conceptual framework will be used as a research roadmap to systematically and progressively guide the research activities to generate data which are useful for providing a deeper and more useful understanding of composition-processing-structure-property relationships and for developing new and useful concepts to advance the project. The project is aimed at leveraging the research progress obtained from our laboratory to capture the new research opportunities in functional biopolymers and synthetic-biopolymers with controlled release properties. The research will be strengthened by the collaboration of several knowledgeable researchers with well equipped laboratories.
