Synthesis and characterization of antimicrobial and antioxidant polymers

Line of research
The research concerns development of antimicrobial polymers which represent a great challenge for both the academic world and industry, since microbial contamination is a serious issue in health and biomedical field, water purification systems, food packaging and storage. Different types of polymer are under investigation to prevent microbial adhesion including antifouling polymers, amphiphilic polymers mimicking antibacterial peptides occurring in nature and functionalized polymers for release of bioactive molecules.
