Maria Gunnarsson

PhD student, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Forest Products and Chemical Engineering

Maria is since 2013 part of the research network Avancell, which is a collaboration between Södra Innovation, Chalmers University of Technology, Lund University, Swerea IVF AB and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB. The project is funded by Södra Skogsägarnas stiftelse för forskning, utveckling och utbildning. The purpose and goal of the project is to study dissolution and regeneration of cellulose in order to contribute to the development of a more sustainable textile fiber. Maria specifically studies dissolution of cellulose in the solvent NaOH(aq) and the molecular interactions that arise in the dissolved state of cellulose and carbon dioxide from, for example, ambient air.
