Immobilisation of biomolecules and cells within polymer matrices has gained considerable importance in various fields of biotechnical processes. Such immobilised biomolecules are relevant in the field of red, green and white biotechnology.
The present invention relates in a first aspect to a coated polymer system comprising silica-coated polymer and functional components. Said coating of the polymer is obtained by using Si-N precursors having at least two amino groups and, in addition, coating is affected in the presence of the functional component (i.e. biomolecule).
