Welcome to the Biomaterials and Lipids Research Group website at the department of Bioengineering. Our group, led by Prof. Dr. Sevil YUCEL, supports research projects in a broad range of topics.
We focus on innovative research for producing nanoscale materials and novel techniques for challenging some industrial problems. Research interests are Silicate and Silicate Materials/Biomaterials (- Aerogel - Bioactive glasses and scaffolds - Dental Composites - Drug delivery - Composite Films - Nanotubes – Zeolites) , Lipid Technology (- Edibe Oil Refining – Biodiesel – Microalgea).
We also focussed on usage of the agricultural wastes (rice hull, wheat hull etc.) for obtaining valuable chemical products.
