Biopolymer Research Group: Research Areas

The research objectives Biopolymer Research Group are aimed at:
  • increasing the knowledge and understanding of cellulose and other biopolymers structures,
  • exploring the links between polymer structure and physical properties,
  • functionalizing surfaces such as textiles and bioplastics to impart new properties, 
  • transforming cellulose to advanced biomaterials (films, nanocomposites, porous materials, etc.).
