Welcome to the Foston Lab

.....where solving problems is our objective and chemistry, analytics and engineering are our tools.

We research emerging technologies for exploitation of biomass as a sustainable source for energy, chemicals and materials production:

  • Synthetic polymers designed, synthesized and characterized from renewable biomass-derived monomers.
  • Novel methods of biomass characterization
  • Chemical and material production from lignin
  • Interfacing biological and thermochemical biomass conversion
