   Biografi/ Biography :

  • Prof Zakaria is an expert in utilising bio-resources lignocellulosic materials especially from plant biomass in converting them into various high value-added products. Her research focuses on the area of pulp and paper technology, wood plastic composites, bioresin, cellulose derivatives and regenerated cellulose with the combination of nano functional materials such as cellulose nano crystal, nano fibrillated cellulose, metal oxide, silver nano particle, etc. Projects in regenerated cellulose and cellulose derivatives involved the preparation of cellulose pulp from various method into film (membrane), wet spin fibre, hydrogel, aerogel and hybrid for various application such as in textile, health, agriculture, membrane separation/purification, electronic etc. The projects of bioresin are utilising biomass via liquefaction and solvolysis process (biorefinery for fine chemicals) for making adhesives, foam and boards such as phenolic and polyurethane and hybrid for various applications.
