Biocomposite systems

Study and preparation of matrices for advanced biocomposite systems and active or functional components synthesis which can be incorporated into these matrices represent the main focus of the research group. Polymer gels made from synthetic and natural biocompatible and biodegradable materials are preferentially selected as the raw materials. A noteworthy special case is the use of bacterial cellulose prepared in our own developed bioreactors and methods. These gels serve e.g. for wound dressing in medicine, can be applied in pervaporation and are tested as electrolytes and membranes in supercapacitors in cooperation with the group “Composites with electric and magnetic properties.” Mineralised gels can be used as templates in bone tissue replacement surgery. The filler based on carbonates is prepared directly inside the gel matrix by the method of biomimetic mineralization. Synthetic polypetoid and peptoid nanosheets with significant bioactivity are used as functional additives.
