Dr. Bissessur’s research includes the development of nanocomposites for use in lithium rechargeable batteries like those found in cell phones. He also studies the use of specific types of nanocomposites to help remove sulfur from petroleum products which would lead to lower processing costs and reduce sulfur oxide emissions into the environment.

Research Interests
  • Polymer liquid crystalline materials
  • Synthesis of inorganic/organic nanocomposite materials
