3D Printing Webinar - March 16, 2018



Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:

3D Printing: Cellulose and PEGDA Nanocomposites

Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Prof. Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! Our new 2018 series with Prof. Advincula is focused on giving audiences a deeper look into various aspects of 3D printing. With applications in many fields such as manufacturing, medicine, architecture, and custom art and design, 3D printing is be at the forefront of many commercial technologies for years to come.

Our next entry in this series is focused on how cellulose and PEGDA nanocomposites are utilized in 3D printing. Cellulose, in the form of paper, has been used since the 2nd century CE as a material to write and print on. Now, researchers are keen to make this incredibly abundant and naturally occurring material into a renewable and biodegradable alternative to the polymers used to print objects today. Other researchers are also developing materials such as polyethylene glycol diacrylate, or PEGDA, a type of nanocomposite for applications for usage in scenarios where toxicity is a particularly sensitive factor such as biomimetic tissue scaffolding.

Join us as Prof. Advincula surveys the field of 3D printing research and development through the lens of the latest in nanoscale characterization techniques.

3D Printing w/ Cellulose

Cellulose not only gives 3D printers the ability to create objects that are biodegradable, but also gives researchers an avenue to explore more exotic fabrication methods such as harnessing bacteria to naturally create cellulose-based objects using silicone molds.
