    Abstract:

Applications: 1. The present invention is in the field of bio-plastics. The invention particularly provides a process for the preparation of agar based bioplastic. 2. The bio-plastic has good biocompatibility and mechanical strength. The bioplastic has use in multiple fields including food or non-food applications, optical applications, drug delivery applications.
Advantages: 1. The present invention relates to a process for the preparation of bioplastics. More particularly, the invention relates to a development of polysaccharides-based bioplastics by crosslinking with diisocyanates and applications thereof. 2. The crosslinked material has use in bioplastic packaging material and biomedical applications.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
