Main Research Lines / Participation in SusPlast:

  • Additive immobilization (“green” PVC)
  • Synthesis of biodegradable polymers for specific applications (polymer synthesis, biodegradation studies)
  • Study of polymer degradation processes: Biodegradation / Aging / Photoaging / Photodegradation
  • Green technologies for obtaining polymers (SCCO2)
  • Synthesis and functionalization, for advanced applications
  • Eco-efficient synthesis of polymers (photochemically, in the absence of solvent, and at room temperature)
  • Recovery of plastic waste through reuse in additive manufacturing processes
  • Antimicrobial polymers and surfaces
  • Analysis and characterization of polymers, study of properties (mechanical, optical, biological ...)
