Bioinspired Nanomaterials: From Discovery to Market Pipeline

ACS Webinars

Inorganic nanomaterials are widely used in healthcare, electronics, and energy sectors estimated to have a worth $20 billion, but manufacturing processes that are both unsustainable and limited in attainable product quality expose these industries to risk.

Join Head of the Green Nanomaterials Research Group, Siddharth Patwardhan, of The University of Sheffield in the UK as he describes a novel, bioinspired, green synthesis route that not only addresses these issues, but delivers sustainable manufacturing technologies for high value functional nanomaterials. Discover a systematic approach that integrates chemistry, materials science, and process engineering that will help bring these materials to the market.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by ACS GCI Science Director, David Constable, of the American Chemical Society and co-produced with the ACS Green Chemistry Institute.

What You Will Learn

  • Why the understanding bio-nano interface is a powerful basis for designing bioinspired syntheses of functional nanomaterials 
  • How careful design of bioinspired nanomaterials can provide commercially relevant products 
  • Why process chemistry, scale-up and downstream processing are equally important in reaching the markets
