Project Description

Free radical Chemistry plays a crucial role in important processes that affect the manufacturing industry, the environment, human health and animal health. The aim of this Centre is to develop new methods of radical generation and explore new reactions of synthetic significance involving radicals, including novel polymerisation processes. In addition, the increased understanding of free-radical chemistry gained through the research carried out in the Centre will be used to develop new biotechnology initiatives, including pharmaceutical products and antioxidants that will defend against oxidative stress associated with several diseases, as well as the degradation of industrial materials.
