Fabrication of Electronic Materials from the Australian Essential Oils

Summary

The main objective of this project is to find a nonmedical application for essential oils and hence encourage Australian farmers to produce more essential oils. The project aims to: i) Fabricate high quality Plasma Polymerised thin films from Australian essential oils (limonene, ápinene, Tea Tree, Lavender and Eucalyptus oils), ii) Study the electrical and optical properties of the polymer thin films and find suitable applications and iii)Test the polymer thin films as a protective/anticorrosive layer in devices.
