Invited Review Article in Materials Horizons (IF 14.4). A. Moreno and M.H. Sipponen. Lignin-based smart materials: a roadmap to processing and synthesis for current and future applications.
In this Review Article we visit a plethora of different lignin-based smart materials that are designed to respond to various stimuli and enable advanced use in sensors, drug delivery, and shape-memory materials. We also provide our perspectives for the future horizons of this rapidly developing field. See more online at: https://doi.org/10.1039/D0MH00798F
SUSMATCHEM group has obtained a research grant to develop lignin-based water resistance coatings (mainly for wood but we like the photo below). We will be recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow for this project. Stay tuned for more information about the recruitment in autumn 2020. We are grateful for support from Södras Stiftelse för Forskning, Utveckling och Utbildning. https://www.sodra.com/sv/se/om-sodra/innovation/forskningsstiftelse/
Norna Gabring has joined the SUSMATCHEM group on June 15th for an exciting summer project to synthesize new lignin-based materials. Adrian will instruct Norna and the research is already underway in the lab. Welcome Norna!
Our proposed project “C1Bio” on carbon dioxide conversion to value-added chemicals and materials has recently been awarded funding by VINNOVA. Looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with Per-Olof Syren (KTH), RISE Processum, Tetyana Budnyak (SU) and Adam Slabon (SU).
