Courses offered

A. Sustainable polymers for the benefit of the society

Polymers and plastics are part of our dayly lifes. The aim of this course is to better understand the macromolecular science and how its use can benefit the whole society. In the introduction part the basic concepts of polymeric materials will be presented such as synthetic methods, characterization techniques and structure-properties relationship. In the next part of the course the environmental issues regarding to polymer industry and the omnipresence of plastics will be discussed…..more

B. Hybrid nanomaterials for biomedical and environmental applications

The objective of this course is to have an overview of existing hybrid nanomaterials, composed of both inorganic (silica, gold, magnetic) and organic (polymer) components and how they have recently been examined as promising platforms for biomedical applications. Moreover, we will see how hybrid nanomaterials can be developed for environmental applications…… more

C. Molecular chemistry for biomedical applications

The objective of this course is an overview of the design and synthesis of organic molecules, biomacromolecules and metal complexes as drugs. Moreover, the valorization of bioactives from sustainable natural sources as ingredients for the design and production of high value bio-functional medicinal products will be discussed. This section will be focused on the preparation and use of molecules in biomedical applications. The course is divided in six parts. ….. more
