From June 29th to July 1st our Department hosted the international conference Chemistry For the Future 2022. Chemistry for the Future (CFF) is a yearly international conference on the frontiers of Chemical Research. It is organized by the Doctoral School in Chemistry and Materials Science (DSCM) and the International Office of the Dipartimento di Chimica e Chimica Industriale (DCCI) of Università di Pisa.
It has been the first big event in presence hosted by our Department after the pandemic, and a great occasion for our PhD students to show up their research.
The NanoLeaves group has contributed to this event with an oral communication presented by Dr. Rosarita D’Orsi, entitled “Lignin: a bio-based dielectric polymer for organic field-effect transistors”, a work in collaboration between our group and the Linz Institute of Organic Solar Cells (LIOS, Johannes Kepler University, Austria).
Our PhD candidate Laura Spagnuolo presented her first poster communication, entitled “Extraction of cellulose nanocrystals from lignocellulosic biomass: application of chemical and enzymatic hydrolysis”.
It was a fantastic experience and we look forward to the next edition of Chemistry For the Future!!
