TopicPolysaccharides, investigation of their structure, dynamics and interactions
AnnotationPolysaccharides are carbohydrate polymers and are among the most ubiquitous and versatile biomaterials available. They have a high structural diversity which is a result of the high variability in monosaccharide composition, sequence and linkage position, anomeric configuration, molecular weight and charge density. Further variability arises with their susceptibility to ionic strength and degree of hydration, which can alter the higher-order structure. The structural diversity of polysaccharides is a reason for the immense variance of chemical properties they possess. The doctoral thesis will focus on polysaccharide research, their structure, dynamics and interactions predominantly for biomedical and environmental applications.
