Title:
Preparation of novel whey protein-based aerogels as drug carriers for life science applications 
Abstract:
High-performance carriers of active compounds processed in a sustainable manner are being prospected in the health care industry and the life science sector in general. The preparation of natural product-based nanoporous materials is regarded as an upgraded process that fulfills the above requirements. The drying of covalently crosslinked protein-based hydrogels using supercritical carbon dioxide is a promising technology for generating highly porous matrices in the dry form (aerogels) susceptib...    »
