Module 4 Material Design
How can biomaterials with structures at varying length scales combine to form new materials with synergies in mass transport characteristics? This is the main question that this module tries to answer. By working with well-known biomaterials with well-defined structures we will develop synthetic routes for constructing new materials with tailored structures and mass transport properties. Of particular interest is to combine the cellulose fibre with entanglement and/or self-associating biopolymers to achieve synergies in material properties as well as mass transport properties.
