SMART POLYMERIC MATERIALS AND NANOMATERIALS
Applied and fundamental research to obtain competitive products at EU level, contributing to increasing the quality of life and health of the population
The field of advanced materials aims to obtain (nano) advanced materials required by different economic fields. Thus, applied and fundamental research is carried out to obtain competitive products at EU level and which contribute to increasing the quality of life and health of the population, increasing the visibility of the institute, partnerships with academia or the private sector and the development of doctoral theses. The field is structured on the following directions with multidisciplinary applications:
“Recycling crustaceans shell wastes for developing biodegradable wastewater cleaning composites – BIOSHELL”
The objective of the project is to obtain functional biopolymer-based hydrogels starting from valorized crustacean’s shell wastes used for metal and antibiotics retention in waters as well for anti-bacterial treatment.
Design of new nanocellulose-based gas-carrier systems
The scope of the CELGAS project is to develop innovative oxygen-carrying systems capable of supplying oxygen in a controlled manner to injured tissue/implants or intravenously.
Synthetic nanogel antibodies molecularly imprinted with the Spike S1 protein -ANTISPIKE
The overall aim of the “ANTISPIKE” project refers to developing original, cost-effective and biocompatible ligand-free nanogel delivery systems that can be used as potential treatment for patients affected by COVID-19
Rational design of composite membranes for advanced heavy metal removal in wastewaters” – I-ON-MEM
The overall objective of the project consists in design of composite membranes for advanced heavy metal removal in wastewaters
Antimicrobial nanocomposites based on polyurethane foam for biomedical applications, synthesized by radiation assisted technology
The main objective of this project is to make a functional model of nanocomposite materials based on polyurethane foam and Ag Np and/or Cu-Au Np, for biomedical applications (i.e. mattresses, surface coverings, floor mats, etc.).
Bio-based nanocomposites from epoxy-celullose with balanced thermo-mechanical properties – EPOCEL
The proposed project aims to develop new nanocomposites, based on renewable and inexpensive biological sources, with thermo-mechanical balanced properties for applications in electronics.
Screen-Printed Hybrid Electrodes for Detecting and Monitoring Lipopolysaccharides
The objective of the project is to design innovative, versatile and re-usable biosensors for the fast, qualitative and quantitative detection and monitoring of lipopolysaccharides in various biological, food or water samples.
Combating the effects of CBRN aggressions using new polyvalent surface decontamination systems POLIDEC
By this project, the partners bring new contributions to the fight against the effects of CBRN agents through the implementation of new multi-purpose decontamination systems.
