Molecules from biological precursors for the preparation of nanostructured biomaterials: synthesis, self-assembly, applications

Line of research
Supramolecular structures formed by natural amphiphilic molecules find applications in both biomedical (drug delivery, tissue engineering) and technological (optoelectronics, nanomaterials) fields of nanoscience. The objective of this investigation is the synthesis of amphiphilic molecules starting from biological precursors such as amino acids, sugars and bile salts, and the study of their self-assembly and applications.
