Biography

Jacques DESBRIÈRES is Professor at University of Pau and Pays Adour (UPPA), Engineer from ENSC Paris and Doctor-Engineer from Grenoble University. After a position as the research engineer with Dowell Schlumberger related to the application of polymers in oil well operations, he joined Grenoble University in 1990 and then UPPA in 2004. He authored around 200 publications and 10 patents.

Research Interest

His research domain is concentrated on chemical modification of natural polymers and relations between their chemical structure, functional properties, and their applications. In the last years his research activities were dedicated to physico-chemistry (interfacial properties) of amphiphilic polysaccharide solutions and polysaccharide-surfactant interactions, hydrogels and particularly their characterization and their specific applications (biomedical or cosmetics applications, wastewater treatments) and new “green processes” applied to bio-sourced materials (microwave irradiation as an example). He is the member of Editorial board of Carbohydrate Polymers, Cellulose Chemistry and Technology and has teaching activities in physico-chemistry and polymer science. Finally, he is Doctor Honoris Causa of Technical University “Gheorghe Asachi” in Iasi (Romania) for his outstanding input in Polysaccharide science.
