Ramya Raghunathan, one of North Dakota State University’s doctoral graduate students involved in the Center for Sustainable Materials Science research, was invited to speak at the prestigious Gordon Research Seminar on Photochemistry that was held July 18-19, 2015 at Stonehill College, Easton, Massachusetts. Her presentation, ‘A Sustainable Approach: Employing Light for the Degradation of Polymer/Oligomer Derived from Renewable Resources’, is based on research she and others involved with the Center for Sustainable Materials Science are conducting on biomass materials that are degradable with light. More information from the NDSU News release about Ramya’s presentation at can be found here.
A journal article about the center’s research on degradable biomass materials was published last year in Angewandte Chemie and received global attention. An announcement about this journal article can be found at NDSU News here.
