Recerca de polímers d'interès industrial (polièsters, poliuretans, poliamides i policarbonats), basats en products naturals de fàcil accessibilitat, principalment carbohidrats, amb l'objectiu d'assolir nous polímers sostenibles amb propietats avançades, els quals siguin capaços de reemplaçar als plàstics tradicionals obtinguts a partir del petroli. Recerca en biopolímers procedents de biosíntesi microbiana, els quals són posteriorment modificats de forma que puguin tenir aplicacions biomèdiques, ja sigui com membranes o com sistemes alliberadors de fàrmacs.

The group carries out research on polymers of interest to industry (polyesters, polyurethanes, polyamides and polycarbonates) based on natural products that are easily accessible (mostly carbohydrates), with the aim of achieving sustainable new polymers with advanced properties that can replace traditional petroleum-based plastics. It also carries out research on biopolymers from microbial biosynthesis that are then modified for biomedical applications as membranes or drug delivery systems.
