The team investigates and elaborates new biomaterials based on natural and synthetic polymers.

Main research fields:

  • biopolymers and their application in, amongst other, medicine and agriculture
  • physical-chemical modification of chitin and chitosan (new useful forms)
  • advanced medical dressings including multifunctional
  • composite biomaterials
  • preparation and modification of implants
  • preparation of media for cell culture
  • preparations for plant protection and care

The section is in possession of a clean laboratory in the D class of purity (surface 114 m2)

Several of the prepared materials have been implemented to commercial scale or are ready for implementation, like :

  • polypropylene/chitosan non-woven for medical dressings
  • “ChorioChit “, a dressing composed of human placenta and microcrystalline chitosan
  • anti-microbial and anti-mite chemical fibres
  • anti-rheumatic textile materials containing amber
  • chitosan-based  agent “Biochikol 020 PC” for plant protection
