NANOMOL makes a valuable contribution to the advancement of knowdedge in the field of molecular nanoscience and organic functional materials. The multidisciplinary research we carry out is aimed at the self-assembly, nanostructuring and processing of functional (bio- and electro-active) molecules as crystals, particles, vesicles, and structured or self-assembled monolayers on various substrates showing non-conventional chemical, physical and biological properties. We use several methodologies for such a processing but a special emphasis is made with supercritical fluids.
In NANOMOL we have strong expertise in the design of efficient methodologies to prepare Nanoparticulate materials (i.e. polymer particles, nanocapsules, vesicles, polymer-drug conjugates, micelles) to be used in new drug delivery systems with tailored properties, including biocompatibility, size, structure, addresability, and functionality. By DELOS-family processes we make possible to design nanoparticulate delivery vehicles for transporting therapeutic actives to protect them from early degradation, prevent their premature interaction with the biological environment, facilitate higher payloads, prolong their circulation life-time, improve drug targeting and solubility and provide controlled release of the therapeutics into the blood stream or the target tissues or organs.
