Nazmun Sultana

PostDoc, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry

Nazmun Sultana joined the Division of Organic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering as a postdoctoral researcher and she is associated to the knowledge platform Treesearch. Her research is focused on Scale up of sustainable production of dialdehyde and dialcohol cellulose. Her goal is to develop a continuous process for the oxidation of cellulose, simulate data for a techno-economical feasible large-scale oxidation process, determine reaction kinetics and develop methods for recycling of the reduction product.
