Prof. Armando J.D. Silvestre (Aveiro, Portugal) will give a talk on biomass refining processes at Materials Science and Engineering Seminar Series – May 24, 2022 at 14:30 CET 20.05.2022 20:16

Hosted by the Materials Science and Engineering Research Council West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin



We are honoured to invite you for a meeting with Prof. Armando J.D. Silvestre, who will give a lecture titled "Development of efficient and innovative biomass refining processes using eutectic solvents (format:  pdf, rozmiar:  156 KB)".

Prof. Armando Silvestre is a Full Professor at University of Aveiro, in the Department of Chemistry and CICECO Aveiro Institute of Materials. He is currently Head of the Department of Chemistry and is also a member of CICECO Group 4- Biorefineries, Biobased Materials and Recycling. 

He earned his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 1994 at the University of Aveiro (UA) and was hired as Auxiliary Professor in the Dept. of Chemistry, UA. In 2002, he was promoted to Associate Professor and earned his Habilitation degree in Chemistry in 2008. He was promoted to Full Professor in 2018.

His research interests are focused on the Biorefinery concept: the sustainable extraction and upgrading of added-value compounds from biomass through the use benign solvents (using ionic liquids, deep eutectic solvents); synthesis of new biobased polymers derived from 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid; and new functional (nano)composite materials and biomaterials based on biopolymers and cellulose (nano)fibers.
