Prof. Dr. Noureddine Abidi
Website
Fiber and Biopolymer Research Instutute, Department of Plant and Soil Science, Texas Tech University PO Box 45019 Lubbock, TX, 79403, USA
Interests: My current research is focused on converting cellulose macromolecules to advanced functional materials. To achieve this, cellulose from cotton fibers is dissolved in different solvents and converted to different materials such as aerogels with tunable porosity and surface area, gels, films, fibers, nanocrystals. These materials can be used for CO2 absorption, dye absorption, etc.
