April 9, 2012 – During the last week of March, the American Chemical Society held its 243rd National Meeting in San Diego, CA. The Virginia Tech Department of Sustainable Biomaterials was represented at this meeting by Prof. Scott Renneckar, Prof. Emeritus Wolfgang Glasser, Prof. Kevin Edgar and his students Haoyu Liu, Junia Pereira, Daiqiang Xu, Siddhesh Pawar, Prof. Maren Roman’s postdoc Hezhong Wang and her students Shuping Dong, Chen Qian, Feng Jiang, and Christopher Houser (undergraduate), and Prof. Chip Frazier’s student Sudip Chowdhury. The delegation delivered thirteen oral and two poster presentations (presenter in bold):

Oral presentations:
CELL 2: Some reflections on the regeneration of cellulose and chitosan (Glasser)
CELL 6: Cellulose morphology and surface charge effects on xyloglucan adsorption (Qian, Roman)
CELL 35: Electrospun fibers of regenerated cellulose for biomedical applications: Formation, characterization, and in vitro biocompatibilty of scaffolds (Renneckar)
CELL 38: Synthesis of new pullulan derivatives for drug delivery (Pereira, Edgar)
CELL 141: Regioselective synthesis of bioactive cellulose derivatives (Edgar)
POLY 151: Derivatization strategies for the polysaccharide alginate (Pawar, Edgar)
CELL 160: Effects of the non-ionic surfactant Tween 80 on the adsorption of cellulases onto lignin substrates (Jiang, Roman)
CELL 170: Optimization of cellulose hydrolysis parameters for maximum nanocrystal yield: A response surface methodology study (Dong, Roman)
CELL 193: Probing orientation and phase behavior of in-situ lignocelluloses using 2H NMR spectroscopy (Chowdhury, Frazier)
CELL 236: Regioselective synthesis of cellulose esters (Xu, Edgar)
CELL 247: Synthesis of organo-soluble alginate esters via carboxyl group modification (Pawar, Edgar)
CELL 276: Gene cloning and expression of fungal chitin deacetylase for the surface deacetylation of chitin nanocrystals (Wang, Roman)
CELL 288: Effects of the non-ionic surfactant Tween 80 on the enzymatic hydrolysis of model cellulose and lignocellulosic substrates (Jiang, Roman)
Poster presentations:
