Pillar 1: Materials Synthesis and Reactivity

The activities in this pillar aim to the development of materials for key applications in

  • regenerative medicine (biopolymers, hydrogels, implants)
  • artificial photosynthesis
  • sustainable commodity materials.

This pillar comprises

  • Modeling of biobased and sustainable materials and their interaction with cells
  • Synthesis of structured materials and thin films for artificial photosynthesis
  • Electrochemical synthesis of new compounds
  • Methods for carbon capture and conversion of CO2 and waste biomass into new materials and chemicals

Our Departments working in this pillar

  • Sustainable Materials
  • Sustainable Catalysis
  • Sustainable Biomaterials
