Synthesis and characterization of bio-based amphiphilic molecules for cosmetic applications

(For English version, see below.)

Die Abteilung Lebenswissenschaften und Gesundheitstechnologien bietet im Wintersemester 2023/24 erstmalig ihre Ringvorlesung an (4 Termine pro Semester) und lädt herzlich alle Mitglieder des PK NRW und Interessierte der Trägerhochschulen dazu ein. Die Veranstaltungen werden online angeboten. Der Link zu den einzelnen Vorträgen wird im Vorfeld durch die Koordination per E-Mail an alle Mitglieder der Abteilung sowie auf Anfrage an Interessierte gesendet.
 

Teil 3:

Mittwoch, 13. Dezember 2023, 13:00-14:30 Uhr

Synthesis and characterization of bio-based amphiphilic molecules for cosmetic applications
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schörken (TH Köln)

Surfactants and emulsifiers are amphiphilic molecules, which are essential ingredients of cosmetic formulations like creams, lotions or shampoos. In the past, these compounds were often produced from petrochemical raw materials. Today a clear trend towards greener and bio-based products is visible. This lecture will present an overview about bio-based surfactants, their synthesis and molecular architecture as well as current development examples from our research group. The biocatalytic and chemical synthesis of amino acid surfactants, the microbial production of novel sophorolipid emulsifiers and the enzymatic synthesis of bioactive catechol glucosides will be covered.
