He is also an editor, guest editor, and publication manager in several journals and proceedings. His current research interests include nanomaterials, green and renewable materials, he published over 100 research papers in the field of materials science and engineering.


With the current development of nanotechnology field, many different high-quality with cost-effective nanomaterials have come into use in various applications. However, the needs for renewable resources-based nanomaterials are inevitable and increasing gradually in the last few years. Therefore, the scientists attempt to use the renewable resources as the feedstocks for the development of their desired products. The current special issue “Current advances in green nanomaterials applications” presents to readers the articles covering different aspects of the synthesis, characterizations and applications of the renewable resources-based nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials from Renewable Resources; Nanomaterials for Renewable Energy; Nanomaterials in Environmental Applications; Design /Processing of Nanomaterials; Advanced Characterization of Nanomaterials;

  • Properties of ABS/Organic-Attapulgite Nanocomposites Parts Fabricated by Fused Deposition Modeling
  • Abstract The paper discusses the mechanical and thermal performance manifested in natural nanorods attapulgite (ATP) reinforced Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) nanocomposites in the process of fused deposition modeling (FDM). Molten extrusion technique was taken to manufacture the filaments of ABS/organic-attapulgite (OAT) nanocomposites with different mass fraction and the printing operation was made by one commercial FDM three-dimensional (3D) printer. Results indicate that the mechanical performance of these FDM 3D printed specimens are improved obviously via the introduction of OAT, and tensile strength of the ABS/OAT nanocomposites parts with only 2 wt% OAT addition is enhanced by 48.1%. At the same time,… More
