[Thesis]: Green processes applied to nanoparticle technology: synthesis and formulation by Víctor Martín Velasco

Dr. Víctor Martín Velasco defended his thesis on Tuesday 4th October 2016 at the University of Valladolid. Nowadays, nanoparticle technology is investigated for being applied in a lot of fields, for example, in catalysis, materials, electronics and biomedicine, one of the most promising. This versatility is because of their properties associated to their size and morphology, such as surface […]

[Paper]: Using different natural origin carriers for development of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) solid formulations with improved antioxidant activity by PGSS-drying

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the catechin with the highest antioxidant activity present in green tea. Nevertheless, due its low bioavailability, it is necessary to develop EGCG formulations capable of improving its stability resulting in increased bioavailability and thus higher biological activity of this catechin (e.g. antioxidant activity). The purpose of this work was the formulation […]
