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 Ryan's in North Augusta.
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.
