> Research Topics of the BioTeam:

< Biobased and/or Biodegradable polymers, for Environmental & Biomedical Applications >

Main thematics:

  • Biodegradable Polymers Materials (short-term applications & biomedical):
    • Thermoplastic starch, thermoplastic chitosan,
    • Bio(co)polyesters: PLA, PCL, PHAs, PBSA, PBS, PBAT,
    • Synthesis by Enzymatic Catalysis of biopolyesters (eROP, polycondensation,)
    • Biosynthesis of building blocks (Liquid and Solid fermentations) towards polymers preparation.
  • Biobased and Durable Polymers Materials (long-term applications):
    • New triglyceride-based polymers (from fatty acid, dimer,)
    • New aromatic macromolecular architectures, based on lignins and tannins,
    • Novative Biobased TPU, PUR, PIR, NIPU & PA.
  • Specific Biomedical Developments:
    • Wound dressings,
    • Tissue Engineering, scaffolds developed by electrospinning,
    • Biosensors, Drug Release,
