Polysaccharide Materials

Polysaccharides are some of the most abundant materials in nature. They play important roles for biosystems from structural functions to cell signaling and interactions with viruses and bacteria.

Polysaccharide materials are often hierarchically structured and have optimized material properties, which make them interesting to material scientists.

These polysaccharides are large molecules, yet the sugar monomers form complex, detailed interactions, making them challenging systems to capture in a coarse grained model.
