Università degli Studi della Tuscia

Identification and characterisation of biobased chemicals and natural and bioactive substance.

The team founded the GENTOXchem (www.gentoxchem.com), producing cosmetics based on natural compounds and active in cytological and cytotoxical analyses, industrial and pharmaceutical chemistry, toxicology and nanotechnology.

Area of Research

  • We are mainly involved in bionanotechnology. Our focus is on the research and development of advanced and smart bio-nanoplatforms from renewable materials and enzymes.  

Expertise and Main Technologies

  • The expertise is organic chemistry, biology and biotechnology and green chemistry. Our technologies include the preparation and characterization of sustainable nanoplatforms for the immobilization of enzymes in single or cascade-based systems, their stabilization and orientation control, and application in different areas including biosensing, bio-catalysis, drug discovery and delivery, bio-inks, and bio-fillers for advanced and functional materials. 

Key Organisms

Trametes versicolor

Agaricus bisporous

Armoracia rusticana

Aspergillus niger

Mucor javanicus

Canavalia ensiformis
