Are bioplastics and plant-based materials safer than conventional plastics?

Biomaterials contain up to 20.000 chemicals

21-Sep-2020

So-called “bioplastics” are marketed as an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional, petroleum-based plastics. They can be made from renewable feedstock, might be bio-degradable or even both. The question is however if these biomaterials are safer than conventional plastics with ...

What Do Spiders Have in Common with Batteries?

Spider silk inspires new class of functional synthetic polymers: Conducting protein-based material could be used in fuel cells, batteries or act as sensor

14-Aug-2020

Synthetic polymers have changed the world around us, and it would be hard to imagine a world without them. However, they do have their problems. It is for instance hard from a synthetic point of view to precisely control their molecular structure. This makes it harder to finely tune some of their ...

Artificial Muscle Sheets Transform Stem Cells into Bone

Programmable biomaterials for bone regeneration introduced

15-Jan-2020

Specifically programmed materials can, under specific conditions, encourage stem cells to transform into bone cells – as revealed by a German research team under the leadership of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Centre for Materials and Coastal Research. To do this, the scientists implemented a ...

Biomaterials smarten up with CRISPR

Programmable CRISPR-responsive smart materials could open the door to novel tissue engineering, bioelectronic, and diagnostic applications

26-Aug-2019

The CRISPR-Cas system has become the go-to tool for researchers who study genes in an ever-growing list of organisms, and is being used to develop new gene therapies that potentially can correct a defect at a single nucleotide position of the vast reaches of the genome. It is also being harnessed ...

Wound healing with the power of nanofibers

03-May-2019

The healing of injuries, especially of severed nerve tracts, nowadays requires complex methods, such as sewing the two nerve stumps together. Scientists from the department of Prof. Tanja Weil (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research), led by Dr. Christopher Synatschke, have now developed a new ...
