Development of Biodegradable Polymers
Naturally-occurring bacterial polymers have an enormous potential as they can be produced from renewable biogenic sources under well controlled conditions and they are efficiently biodegraded. Applying novel biotechnological and chemical approaches, to transform bio-based macromolecules into molecules with high added value, we have developed appropriate methods to enable design of new biodegradable and bioactive oligomers for diverse applications in medicine, the cosmetic industry and agriculture.
