Main Research Lines / Participation in SusPlast:

  • Polymer modification and processing (functionalization of natural polymers, preparation of micro and nanoparticles through emulsion methods and nanoprecipitation)
  • Nanostructured polymer films and coatings obtained through layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of biobased polymers
  • Design and characterization of biobased polymer hydrogels and their nanocomposites with functional nanoparticles for high added value applications
  • Advanced rheological characterization of polymer and biopolymer solutions and gels for the determination of structure-properties relationship
  • Biomedical applications (magnetic hyperthermia, drug delivery, 3D hydrogel printing)
