INTERACT Summer School: Harnessing the Power of Interactions for Lignocellulosics Design
The course aims to give the participants insights into the chemistry and properties of lignocellulosics, focusing on how their interfacial interactions can be harnessed in advanced materials engineering. The course will explore covalent and non-covalent modification of lignocellulose components and give an overview of instrumental techniques for their characterization focusing on surface sensitive techniques. Furthermore, the course will provide a broadened understanding of the decisive role of interactions in various materials such as hydrogels, films, emulsions, and composites, to name a few. In addition, the course will highlight examples of current research on novel materials for the bioeconomy.
