About the Author

Alessandro Gandini is a physical chemist who has taught and conducted research for the last fifty years at academic and other institutions in Switzerland, UK, Canada, USA, Cuba, France, Brazil and Portugal, after his first degree in Italy. His main scientific interests are polymer synthesis and characterization, with a special emphasis on polymers from renewable resources, photochemistry, and the physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces. He has published more than 400 scientific contributions and is an Honorary Doctor of the Saint Petersburg Forestry Academy and of Havana University, and was invested with the Ermine decoration of Grenoble National Polytechnic Institute, France.

Talita M. Lacerda received her PhD degree in chemistry in 2012 from the São Carlos Institute of Chemistry, University of São Paulo, Brazil. After holding a post-doc position in Professor Alessandro Gandini's research group (2012-2016) and in Professor Michael Meier's research group (2013-2014), she moved in 2016 to the Biotechnology Department of Lorena School of Engineering, University of São Paulo. Her main research interests include the synthesis and chemical modification of polymers and the development of biocomposites based on renewable resources.
