Scientific offering

  • Molecular and thermodynamic study on the interaction between drugs, macromolecules and other bioactive substances with biomembranes, as well as with other association colloids (micelles, vesicles) used as drug delivery systems
  • Obtaining monolayers of surfactants and macromolecules on solid substrates (Langmuir-Blodgett and Langmuir-Schaeffer flims) for further analysis (microscopy, spectroscopy, etc.)
  • Structural characterisation of amphiphilic compounds through surface potential (surface charge), Brewster angle microscopy (BAM), and fluorescence
  • Study of the penetration of water-soluble substances onto spread monolayers at the air/water interface (adsorption kinetics onto membranes, cell uptake mechanisms)
  • Study of the surface activity of surfactants in different conditions
  • Surface behaviour of liposomes, nanoparticles and other systems of drugs administration
  • Thermodynamic studies of surface miscibility in multicomponent systems; surface phase diagrams
  • Use of monolayer technique as cellular membrane model
