This thesis is entitled "Regioselective modification of cellulose nanocrystals: synthesis, assemblies and functional properties" is co-supervised by M. Bruno JEAN (CNRS researcher and team leader at CERMAV).
This thesis is entitled "Design, synthesis and characterization of hydrogels with high compressive strength for the sustainable delivery of hydrophobic drugs", and is co-supervised by both Ms. Rachel Auzély-Velty (Professor at the University of Grenoble Alpes and team leader at CERMAV) and Ms. Isabelle Texier-Nogues, Research Engineer at CEA Leti-L2CB.
This article is intended for anyone who's interested in the different levels of representation of glycomolecules. From the "freehand" draft to the virtual reality immersion, the tools and applications available in open access are presented, gauged and explained.
Cellulose is generally perceived as rigid, however it is capable of deforming. We have shown that the simple process of drying a disorganized network of cellulose crystals causes them to bend. This deformation contributes to the expression of the barrier property of cellulosic materials.
We have just published the results of our international collaboration with MPI-Potsdam (Germany) in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. In this work, we built a model carbohydrate material system based on synthetic gluycose disaccahrdes. Microcrystal electron diffraction (microED) analysis revealed that the synthetic disaccharides formed highly crystalline helical fiber. The chirality of the assembled helical fibers can be tunable by changing the enantiomeric structure of the disaccharides, underlining the potential of designer carbohydrate materials for nanotechnology applications.
