"Bio-based functional materials"

Welcome to the official website

of Prof. Aji Mathew´s group:

In Aji Mathew´s lab, we have a vision to develop bio-based functional materials with special focus on green and environmental-friendly processes. The group has extensive know-how on biobased  nanocomposites, membranes, foams and hydrogels  for water purification, biomedical and photocatalytic activity applications.We also work on recycling of textiles and sustainable  and circular  processing of materials from biological and industrial residues.
