Postdoc; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering; Applied Chemistry, Lars Evenäs Group

Alexander Idström has a doctoral degree in Materials Science and in his role he supports researchers in the Chalmers Area of Advance – Materials Science with questions where nuclear magnetic resonance, or NMR, can be useful. The work involves analysis using both solution-state NMR, to determine e.g. the product and yield of a reaction or the diffusion of a molecule in a material, and solid-state NMR, to determine e.g. the structure or composition of a material.

My three most important publications:
  • Interphase design of cellulose nanocrystals/poly(hydroxybutyrate-ran-valerate) bionanocomposites for mechanical and thermal properties tuning
  • On the dissolution of cellulose in tetrabutylammonium acetate/dimethyl sulfoxide: a frustrated solvent
  • 13C NMR assignments of regenerated cellulose from solid-state 2D NMR spectroscopy
