Prof. Ulrica Edlund KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Ulrica Edlund is a professor in Polymer Technology Fibre and Polymer Technology, KTH – Royal Institute of Technology. Her research spans over the fields of synthesis, surface modification, characterization and materials design of polymers, with special focus on the development of functional and advanced formulations and materials from renewable resources. Inventing and developing a new, non-destructive, one-step technique for the covalent surface modification of biomaterials. Strong focus on the design of renewable functional materials for a sustainable future from terrestrial and marine biomass, including wood biomass, algae and agricultural residues. Inventions include bioplastics from algae, and renewable films, coatings, microspheres, and hydrogel formulations based on more or less purified non-cellulosic polysaccharide rich fractions generated in commercial wood processing operations. Director of Mistra TerraClean, a large research program targeting smart materials for clean air and water.
