Lundi 13 mai 2019 : Conférence de Sabu THOMAS : Engineering at the Nanoscale : A Strategy for Developing High Performance Functional Bio-Materials

Sabu THOMAS, Professeur à l'Université de Kottayam, Inde, Docteur honoris causa de l'Université de Lorraine et invité à l'Institut Jean Lamour dans le cadre du dispositif Professor@Lorraine de Lorraine Université d'Excellence, donnera une conférence le 13 mai 2019 sur le thème :

"Engineering at the Nanoscale : A Strategy for Developing High Performance Functional Bio-Materials"

 

Date et lieu :
Lundi 13 mai 2019 à 14h00
Campus Artem, Nancy
Amphithéâtre 100


Abstract :

The talk will concentrate  on various approaches being used to engineer bio-materials at the nanoscale for various applications in future technologies. In particular, polysaccharide polymers such as  cellulose, starch and chitin will be used to highlight the challenges and progress. Several polymer systems will be considered such as rubbers, thermoplastics, thermoetts and their blends for the fabrication of functional polymer bio-nanocomposites. The interfacial activity of bio-nanomaterials  in compatibilising binary polymer blends will also be discussed.   Various self assembled  architectures of hybrid nanostructures can be made using relatively simple processes. Some of these structures offer excellent opportunity to probe novel nanoscale behavior and can impart unusual macroscopic end properties. I will talk about various  applications of  these materials, taking into account their multifunctional properties. Some of the promising applications of  nano cellulose, chitin, starch  and their hybrids  for medical, water purification, energy storage  and EMI shielding applications will be reviewed.
