Areas of research

|Alt imatge central|

Within the field of sustainable polymer development, the main areas of our current research are:

  •   Synthesis and characterization of new polymers from biomass-derived resources.
  •   Copolymers with well-defined architectures: AB amphiphilic copolymers for drug encapsulation and drug release, ABA block copolymers for thermoplastic elastomer applications.
  •  Improvement of the polymer degradation ability: stimuli degradable homopolymers and copolymers.
  •   Application of controlled polymerization techniques (ROP, RAFT, ATRP, SET-LRP, etc.) to produce well defined polymeric architectures.
