IPCB Instrumentation and Know How

Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials of CNR (IPCB) laboratories are equipped with high-performance Instrumentation of next generation.
IPCB instrumentation wordcloud It enables to perform advanced techniques of analysis and to provide Mass Spectrometry facility (MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, SEC-MALDI Analysis of Polymers, Proteolysis and identification of proteins from SDS-PAGE gels, Electrospray mass spectrometry).
The Instrumentation is used by postgraduate students and research staff of Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials of CNR (IPCB), but is also available for external contract work.

Instruments:

The research of Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials of CNR (IPCB) focuses on chemistry of polymers: new polymeric materials, recycling, biodegradable polymers, polymer blends, glycomics, glycoproteomics and proteomics.

IPCB activity is carried out through several research projects grouped in thematic areas: Structural characterization, chemical modification, degradation and stabilization of polymeric materials; Specialty Polymers; Structural characterization, chemical modification of natural polymers.

Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials of CNR (IPCB) Catania has specially expertise into the following fields:

  • Thermal Degradation mechanisms of polymers;
  • Polymer Recycling by Pyrolysis;
