The team developed the topic “Efficiency of Essential Oil Extracted from Piper Betel Leaves for Antibacterial Soap” on the basis of a study participating in the university's student scientific research competition. This is part of a series of research on natural products for life developed at HUMG. As a result, the team created an all-natural, highly effective antibacterial soap under the consultation of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tong Thi Thanh Huong – Deputy Head of Faculty of Oil and Gas of HUMG. The Covid-19 epidemic was a big obstacle for the team working together. However, they had a scientific assignment of tasks and effective teamwork, despite being online. Lab tests have been carefully performed to evaluate the product. The in-depth study of academic documents and reference to international publication to prepare the theoretical basis were also a strength of the student group.
