This book merges the two most important trends in biomaterials: functionalization and renewable chemistry. It covers a variety of biopolymers and various approaches for the transformation of these biopolymers into functional units.
Assist. Prof. Tamilselvan Mohan obtained his Master of Science in Chemistry in 2006 from the Kanchi Mamunivar Centre for Post Graduate Studies (KMCPGS), Pondicherry, India. In 2007, Dr. Mohan graduated from the Pondicherry University with a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) degree in Chemistry. From 2007-2009, Dr. Mohan worked as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) in the Pondicherry University (India) under the supervision of Prof. K. Anbalagan. Dr. Mohan pursued his Ph.D degree in the field of surface modification of polysaccharide cellulosic materials for Biosensor application from the University of Maribor, Maribor, Slovenia under the guidance of Prof. Karin Stana-Kleinschek. Dr. Mohan joined as a post-doctoral fellow (February-May 2013) in the group of Prof. Günter Reiter, Albert-Ludwig-University of Freiburg, Germany. From May 2013 - June 2017 he worked on the solid-liquid interface studies, design of nanoparticles-polymer composites and tailoring of natural (e.g. cellulose) and synthetic polymeric surfaces for obtaining new functional properties in the University of Graz in the group of Prof. Volker Ribitsch. Since July 2017 he is working in the group of Prof. Stana Kleinschek, University of Maribor, where he mainly focuses on the development of various types of functional materials for flame-retardant, paper conservation and tissue engineering applications. Prof. Karin Stana Kleinschek, obtained her PhD degree from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the University of Graz, Austria. Her field of expertise is surface modification and characterization of polysaccharides and its usability in biomedical applications. She works as Full Professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Maribor (UM), where she teaches various courses on Polymer Chemistry, Surface Characterization of Polymeric Materials and Textile chemistry. From 2011- 2015 she was a Vice Rector for Research and Development of the UM. She is a member of various scientific organizations. Since 2013 she is a member of the European Academy for Science and Art and from 2014 associate member of Slovenian Academy of Engineering. Since October 2016 she is visiting professor at TU Graz. Her scientific bibliography consists of more than 1052 units, including 194 scientific peer-reviewed papers; she participates and coordinates numerous of national as well as international research projects.
