"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.
