About Samuel Hudson

Jump To:

Dr. Hudson is a polymer chemist with an interest in the conversion of biopolymeric materials, such as chitin, chitosan, amylose and silk like proteins, into useful fibers and films. These studies may involve chemical derivatization reactions, and the characterization of the reaction products. Our laboratory has facilities for wet and melt extrusion of fibers. The chemical aspects of fiber formation are emphasized.
