The Central Savannah River Local Section of AIChE invites you to a talk on nanotechnology by Clemson University Professor Christopher Kitchens. The November 6, 2014 meeting will be held at TO BE ADDED. The cost of the meeting will be $25 for professionals and $5 for students.
Chris' talk is titled "The Impact of Cellulose Nanocrystal Orientation on the Enhanced Mechanical Properties and Structural Color of Bio-Nanocomposites". Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are the nano-scale building blocks that provide natural fibers their unique and often unmatched properties. This work focuses on the incorporation of CNCs into polymer nanocomposites from renewable resources; taking a biomimetic approach to polymer nanocomposite design.
