ACMIN Seminar: „Advanced manufacturing of aerogel-based materials”

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the ACMiN Seminar which will be held on Thursday, March 17th at 2.00 p.m. To participate in the meeting please visit the link below: 

The lecture entitled „Advanced manufacturing of aerogel-based materials” will be given by dr hab. Carlos García González (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain).


Aerogels are nanostructured materials consisting on solid and open mesoporous networks, endowed with high specific surface areas and obtained from gels after the removal of the solvent without significant structure compaction, usually through supercritical drying. The extracellular matrix-mimicking nanostructure of aerogels along with the biological implications of certain aerogel sources (e.g., polysaccharide and protein) to promote the attachment and growth of cells are especially attractive as scaffolds for regenerative medicine. Moreover, aerogels are also especially advantageous as carriers of bioactive compounds (e.g., anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics). In this work, different strategies for the processing of aerogel-based materials for biomedical applications are presented.
