Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has been successfully used in endodontic applications because of its unique biocompatibility, antibacterial nature, seal ability, and its capacity to promote hard tissue formation. However, MTA is difficult to use for practitioners because of its properties of granular consistency, long setting time, initial looseness, and unexpected discoloration. Granular form of MTA at the initial stage of blending makes the material hard to aggregate. While a long setting ti...

Boiling heat transfer is used in a variety of industrial processes and applications, such as refrigeration, power generation, heat exchangers, cooling of high-power electronics components and cooling of nuclear reactors. Enhancements in boiling heat transfer processes are vital and could make these typical industrial applications more energy efficient. There is a universal demand for producing more effective heat removal systems involving boiling heat transfer. The current problem is that heat t...

Active and multifunctional packaging materials are in a higher demand due to rising trend for food safety and longer shelf life. Such packaging materials need to prolong the shelf life of the food without interfering with existing food processes. It must incorporate anti-bacterial agents to inhibit the growth of bacteria, which is one of the key determinant factors of food shelf life. This technology presents the use of the polymeric films comprising of halloysite nanotubes as a packaging materi...

In an urban city like Singapore, every resident generates about 150kg of food waste together with 30kg of disposable foodware waste every year. This accumulates to about 1 billion tonnes of waste yearly for Singapore. And much of these wastes comes from food service providers like food caterers, canteens operators and restaurants. The proposed technology is a closed-loop solution that sustainably address the end-of-life of single-use foodware such as disposable plates, bowls and cups. The techn...

This current technology is a synthesis of dye carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) from agricultural wastes (e.g rice straw, bagasse and corn cob) by cooperation of encapsulation and spray drying techniques. It can be applied to be used as food and non-food additives such as stabilizers, thickeners and plasticizers. Dye CMC is more useful as it contains colour pigments and bio-active compounds from various sources of natural plants. The bio-active compounds can act as antimicrobial and antioxidant subs...
