Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials

IPCB Catania is part of the network of CNR research Institutes. IPCB is acronym for Istitute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials.

IPCB research

Main research topics at IPCB are: structural characterization, chemical modification, degradation and stabilization of polymeric materials; synthesis and characterization of specialty polymers; structural characterization and chemical modification of natural polymers.
wordcloud of IPCB research The research of IPCB Institute focuses on chemistry of polymers: new polymeric materials, recycling, biodegradable polymers, polymer blends, glycomics, glycoproteomics and proteomics. IPCB laboratories are equipped with high-performance Instrumentation of next generation. It enables our researchers 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 (Mariner ESI -TOF). IPCB Catania staff is composed of 18 researchers, 3 technologists, 4 technicians and 2 administratives, for a total of 27 units. Moreover, the Institute hosts numerous students and post-doctors.
IPCB has established many collaborations with national and international universities and research centres and it collaborates with several SMEs and big companies by supporting them in the development of new materials and improvement of existing production processes. Further the SMEs are also supported in the preparation of research projects to be present in national and regional calls.
IPCB in Catania has more then 530 ISI publications. Search into the publications database for more informations.
