196 SUPERCRITICAL FLUIDS
Supercritical fluids are involved in a wide variety of applications which have shown a significant progress in recent years. Many industrial sectors are concerned including cosmetics, pharmaceutics, materials, chemistry or energy. Other areas are in rapid development such as the cleaning of mechanical parts or the surface preparation of microelectronics. It should be noted that water (Tc = 374 °C, Pc = 221 bars), which critical point is higher than that of CO2 (Tc = 31 °C, Pc = 74 bars), is nevertheless very much studied as a reaction medium, finding applications in the synthesis of nanoparticles and the recovery and treatment of waste.

54 Elastic fast swelling hydrogel
A fast responsive superporous hydrogel technology. The crosslinking is maintained by hydrolyzable diacrylate polymer and vinyl modified polypeptide. As these crosslinks break down, the material will start to fall apart and shrink. In addition, this superporous hydrogel is elastic (mechanically resilient) as it can be stretched more than 100% of its original size.

11 Anti-diabetic agents
Novel anti-diabetic compounds have been discovered with oral availability. The applications would be cosmetics, functional foods, supplements and Pharma. The cosmetic application comes from control of blood/skin sugar which “ages” skin quickly if not well regulated. The compounds have protective activity. They can also be used to control weight. Cardiovascular health is also maintained by good regulation of sugars. The Innovator has a niche expertise in iminosugars and related compounds from plants and micro-organisms.

5 New method of encapsulation
Metal oxide micelles modified with organic ligands on the surface have been prepared. The ligands applied in sol-gel synthesis of inorganic materials are hydrophobic ones such as carboxylate or phosphonate groups. Positively charged micelles are attracted to the negatively charged cell membrane surface, are discharged and coalesce to form a continuous shell. This unique bioencapsulation method covers also the approaches for chemically or biochemically controlled release of the bioactive components, tissues or organisms from said particles.
