Extraction and chracterization of poly/hydroxyalkanoate) from microbial cultures

Line of research
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are microbial polyesters that are attracting considerable interest as alternatives to traditional plastics, as they come from renewable sources and are completely biodegradable. In this context, the research line focuses on the relationship between the conditions of the production process and the chemical, chemical-physical properties of the polymers.
