Yerba Buena Ballroom 6 (Marriott San Francisco)
#267 - Biocomposites (08F04)
This session welcomes contributions from all areas of “Biocomposites” ranging from environment-friendly biodegradable composites to biomedical composites for drug/gene delivery and tissue engineering applications. Relevant topics include novel preparation and characterization methods, relationship between composite morphology and properties/applications, and theoretical and experimental studies exploring the “filler-matrix” interactions in these systems.
