Lars Nordstierna

Associate Professor; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Surface Chemistry

Lars Nordstierna’s research group has a focus on characterization methodology and materials development in the field of surface and colloid chemistry. The characterization is often based on the application of NMR spectroscopy, ranging from solid-state (e.g. molecular linearity in fibers) and diffusometry (e.g. molecular association in solution) to high-resolution methods (e.g. quantification of multi-functionalized polymers). From a materials perspective, molecular and supramolecular properties of biomass-based materials is one of the main interests where cellulose is the central polymer. Another focus is formulation and physical properties of core-shell particles in order to achieve controlled release of active substances from coatings or fibrillar materials.
​Lars Nordstierna is Director of Studies for the graduate school Materials Science and coordinator of basic education at the department. He is examiner and/or lecturer in Colloids and Polymers (KTK106), Surface and Materials Chemistry (KTK116), Materials Science (LKT280), Surface Chemistry (KTK095), Individual Project in Materials Chemistry (KBT305), Bachelor's Thesis in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (KBTX10), and various Thesis projects (KBTX11, KBTX12, KBTX61).
