Jan Dlugosz University in Czestochowa

The activities of the Institute revolve around the synthesis and characterization of new biodegradable materials for application in agriculture, packaging industry, medicine and pharmacy, mainly for construction biodegradable polymeric material used for packaging of organic waste and agricultural and horticultural films, bioresorbable polymeric scaffolds with shape memory behaviour as well as systems for the controlled release of biologically active substances, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. The polysaccharide research at Institute is mainly related to starch chemistry and technology and concerns chemical, physical and enzymatic modification of starch for food (dietary fibre, prebiotics, dietary supplements) and non-food (hydrophobically modified starch as packaging material, biomaterials of new generation from cereals and milling processing, microcapsules for controlled release).
