This discussion meeting will focus on the fundamental chemical, physical properties of cellulosic materials in nature and their future utilisation for engineering materials and bioeconomy. The programme of distinguished speakers, whose backgrounds reflect the interdisciplinary nature of research into cellulosic materials, will provide a dynamic, border-crossing and thought-provoking review of this emerging area.
The schedule of talks and organiser/speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
