PhD project: Biocatalytic membranes assembled from spherical lignin nanoparticles and lignin fibers
Supervisor: Assist. Prof. Mika Sipponen
Dissertation planned to: 2025
My research focuses on fabrication of bio-catalytic membranes, as an alternative to present catalytic membranes which are formed from synthetic polymers. The building blocks of these membranes will be lignin-based fibers as well as nano particles.
Research theme: 1–wood components, 2–biorefinery, 3–material forming, 4–material concepts
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
