SC – Sustainable Chemistry: New Methods and Materials

SC

“Sustainable Chemistry: New Methods and Materials” group gathers researchers with consistent know-how and experience in materials science, electrochemistry and analytical chemistry. Current research comprises the development and application of innovative materials and chemical / electrochemical-related processes focused on important goals of sustainable development. Foreseen applications are clean water, clean energy, health and general well-being.

 

Projects under development include:

  • Preparation and characterization of advanced polymeric material to be use in high-power batteries, electronic appliances and environmental friendly coatings.
  • Development of meso- and nanostructures with application in innovative therapeutics and water purification systems.
  • Development of electrochemical methods and devices for sensing and pollutants abatement.
  • Valorization of humic substances from organic waste.

Research is conducted in collaboration with national and international research labs and with companies to fulfil both fundamental research and S&T goals. Previous partnerships, supported in projects, contract programs, PhD and MSc projects, resulted in high quality outputs, such as scientific papers, patents and thesis produced in the last years.
