Functionalised and Sustainable Polymers from Sugars - 2020 AGM Lecture

12 February 2020 19:00-20:00, Bristol, United Kingdom

In this talk, Antoine Buchard will present his group’s efforts towards incorporating sugar units into synthetic polymer backbones. Natural sugars are an abundant and diverse resource that can be obtained from waste and non-edible crops. They are also non-toxic, biodegradable, biocompatible and highly functionalisable, so that the polymer properties can be adjusted to meet specific material needs.
The objective of his research is to develop environmentally benign, cost and performance-competitive, sustainable synthetic polymers from natural feedstocks, in order to address the dependence on depleting fossil fuel resources of most polymers today.
