This talk will begin by reviewing the Turaev category. Hopf G-coalgebras can be simply defined as Hopf algebras in that category. After presenting some interesting examples, I will communicate the results of my ongoing project involving the cobar functor in the context of G-coalgebras. This is work in progress, and we expect to extend the classical adjunction between the cobar functor and the loop space functor to the context of Turaev categories.
