From order to chaos: Case studies of cellulose and lignin materials Cancelled

Lecturer: Alexandros Efraim Alexakis

Παρασκευή 17 Μαΐου 2024 at 14:00

Wood is a natural bio-composite that is composed of primarily cellulose (~40%), hemicellulose (~30%) and lignin (~30%). The former is a partially crystalline polysaccharide composed of glucose units which reinforce the matrix made of hemicellulose an [...]

Superabsorbent biopolymer matrices from agro-polymers: Rheology, processing, and applications

Lecturer: Antonio Guerrero

Παρασκευή 19 Απριλίου 2024 at 14:00

Superabsorbent polymers (SAP) based on acrylic derivatives exhibit remarkable properties, as they can absorb an impressive amount of water (i.e. from 10 to 1000 times their weight, in g/g). Unfortunately, these polymers are challenged by a poor biode [...]

Biomolecule detection through openings in materials

Lecturer: Maria Fyta

Πέμπτη 04 Απριλίου 2024 at 15:00

Nanometer-sized openings, known as nanopores, in materials can electrophoretically drive biopolymers, such as DNA, RNA, and proteins through. The passage, known as translocation, of these biomolecules gives rise to distinct current signals that can b [...]

Modern synthetic approaches fοr bioconjugates and biopolymers aimed at sustainable applications

Lecturer: Kelly Velonia

Τετάρτη 06 Μαρτίου 2024 at 14:00

The development of precisely engineered synthetic biomaterials based on natural biopolymers is a flourishing area of research focusing on establishing high-yielding and facile methodologies to overcome the limitations of the traditional methods of bi [...]

Multiscale techniques and Machine Learning methods for improving and predicting the properties of nanoporous materials

Lecturer: Tyllianakis Manolis

Τετάρτη 28 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 at 14:00

Metal Organic Frameworks, MOFs, have attracted the last two decades a major interest from scientific community due to their wide range of applications. With the appropriate selection of their primary and secondary building units, one can create struc [...]

Multiscale Modeling of Complex Molecular Systems

Lecturer: Grigorios Megariotis

Τετάρτη 21 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 at 14:00

This presentation concerns the in-silico study of complex molecular systems at different levels of description and is divided into two parts. The first one focuses on polymer and polymer-based systems simulated by a mixed particle and field-based Bro [...]

Polariton Condensates in Optically Imprinted Potentials: From 2D Spin Lattices to Polaritonic Qubits in an Annular Traps

Lecturer: Pavlos Savvidis

Παρασκευή 16 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 at 15:00

Engineering of multiphase soft materials at the microscale

Lecturer: Emmanouil Chatzigiannakis

Δευτέρα 12 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 at 14:00

The stability and rheology of multiphase materials like foams, emulsions, and immiscible polymer blends is largely dictated by the characteristics of the involved interfaces and the dynamics of the thin liquid films separating interacting droplets or [...]

Technologies for the Circular Economy

Lecturer: Dimitris Collias

Παρασκευή 09 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 at 14:00

Technologies for the Circular Economy include materials and process development technologies employing renewable carbon, recycled carbon, and waste carbon (including CO2). The main driver for these technologies is the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG [...]
