    ABSTRACT: Recent sustainable advancement in carbon nanotechnology has further broadened the scope of application of carbon based materials, especially graphene based polymer nanocomposites, in emerging applications. This paper mainly focuses on recently emerging trends in synthesis and properties of graphene based polymer nanocomposites, in addition to brief discussion of some selected carbon based nanocomposites for application in electromagnetic interference shielding efficiency, terahertz shielding efficiency, electrostatic dissipation, thermal interface materials, sensors, and energy storage. Finally, an overview of recently emerging trends in sustainability, economies of scale, and emerging commercial market share of these materials is also presented.

    ABSTRACT: With the rapid development of science and technology, increasing research interests have been focused on environment protection, global warming, and energy shortage. At present, reducing friction force as much as possible has developed into an urgent issue. Sharkskin effect has the potential ability to lower viscous drag on the fluid-solid interface in turbulence, and therefore, how to fabricate bio-inspired sharkskin surfaces is progressively becoming the hot topic. In this review, various methods of fabricating drag reduction surfaces covering biological sharkskin morphology are illustrated and discussed systematically, mainly involving direct bio-replicated, synthetic fabricating, bio/micro-rolling, enlarged solvent-swelling, drag reduction additive low-releasing, trans-scale enlarged three-dimensional fabricating, flexible printing, large-proportional shrunken bio-replicating, ultraviolet (UV) curable painting, and stretching deformed methods. The overview has the potential benefits in better acquainting with the recent research status of fabricating sharkskin surfaces covering the biological morphology.

    ABSTRACT: Recent advancements in natural fiber-reinforced polymer composites have engineered the need to procure alternatives to replace metals in automotives, construction, aerospace, defense, electronics, and gas and oil industries. However, application versatility of biomaterials has been limited due to poor flame retardancy. In line with the new CO2 emission policy and global ban on halogenated flame retardants, the automotive and aerospace industries require environmentally benign materials with nonhalogenated flame retardancy, that can provide the high FPI, and low FGI, required to reduce fatalities and destruction of properties during real fire situations. Researchers, therefore, postulate that versatility of application of biomaterials can be attained by improving their fire retardant properties. Hence, this paper reviews novel emerging technologies used in achieving flame retardancy in biofibers, biopolymers, biocomposites, and bionanocomposites.

    ABSTRACT: In the past decades, process engineers are facing increasingly more data analytics challenges and having difficulties obtaining valuable information from a wealth of process variable data trends. The raw data of different formats stored in databases are not useful until they are cleaned and transformed. Generally, data cleaning consists of four steps: missing data imputation, outlier detection, noise removal, and time alignment and delay estimation. This paper discusses available data cleaning methods that can be used in data pre-processing and help overcome challenges of "Big Data".

    ABSTRACT: Tissue engineering has evolved into an exciting area of research due to its potential in regenerative medicine. The shortage of organ donor as well as incompatibility between patient and donor pose an alarming concern. This has resulted in an interest in regenerative therapy where the importance of understanding the transport properties of critical nutrients such as glucose in numerous tissue engineering membranes and scaffolds is crucial. This is due to its dependency on successful tissue growth as a measure of potential cure for health issues that cannot be healed using traditional medical treatments. In this regard, the diffusion of glucose in membranes and scaffolds which act as templates to support cell growth must be well grasped. Keeping this in mind, this review paper aims to discuss the glucose diffusivity of these materials. The paper reviews four interconnected issues, namely, (i) the glucose diffusion in tissue engineering materials, (ii) porosity and tortuosity of these materials, (iii) the relationship between microstructure of the material and diffusion and, (iv) estimation of glucose diffusivities in liquids, which determine the effective diffusivities in the porous membranes or scaffolds. It is anticipated that the review paper would help improve the understanding of the transport properties of glucose in membranes and scaffolds used in tissue engineering applications.
