About this book

This book effectively links the latest scientific advances to current technological applications of polymers, mainly focusing on biodegradable polymers obtained from biomass. The individual chapters were written by academic and industry researchers alike, introducing readers to topics that have received little attention in the literature to date. Key topics covered include polymers used in various areas such as food packaging, pharmaceuticals, energy production and the cosmetics industry, as well as the treatment of aqueous effluents. 

About the authors

1. Prof. Dr. Silvia Goyanes: After getting her PhD in Physics at the University of  Buenos Aires (UBA), Argentina, she had a postdoctoral stay at the University of the Basque Country, Spain, under the supervision of Professor Iñaki Mondragon. Since 2005, Silvia has held the position of Professor of Experimental Physics at the Physics Department of the School of Natural and Exact Sciences – UBA and is also head of the Nanomaterials Group. She is also Senior Researcher of the National Research Council (CONICET) and external advisor for YPF-Technology. She specializes in nanostructures and polymer nanocomposite, focusing on the development of biopolymers and biodegradable packaging materials, especially biopolymer-based nanocomposites, packaging materials and active packaging systems. She has published over 90 international peer-reviewed journal articles, 8 international book chapters and is also the inventor of 7 patents (3 PCT and 2 registered in USA). She was granted with the Ibero-American Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship from the SEGIB (2010) and with the Special Mention of the L’Oreal-CONICET Award for Women in Science (2012).

2. Prof. Dr. Norma B. D’Accorso: Norma B. D’Accorso got her Ph.D. in Chemistry in the Organic Chemistry Department in School of Exact and Natural Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is a Full Professor at the Organic Chemistry Department of the School of Exact and Natural Sciences–UBA. She is also a Senior Researcher of National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET) and External Advisor for YPF-Technology. Dr. D’Accorso is in charge of the Bio-organic Materials Group and her field of Interest is Polymers, Carbohydrates, Heterocycles, Nanomaterials and Biomedical Materials.

She has published over 111 journal articles, six book chapters and various chapters in chemical education. She has leaded numerous research projects. She has 5 national patents and 2 inter

national ones. Currently she is Vice director of the Research Center of Carbohydrates (since 2001).
