This week's featured researches
Process optimization is necessary for the design and development of materials with new performances and high functionality, able to operate under aggressive conditions such as those of the waste energy plants, the systems for solar cells, the fossil fuel systems or the innovative nuclear systems (subcritical reactors, Generation IV reactors).
Synthesis of Metallic Nano-particles (Au, Pt) stabilized with organic capping molecules (tetraoctylamonium bromide) to prepare self-assembled hybrid systems with thiophene and pyrrole-based oligomers and polymers, properly functionalized. The materials organized in thin films through layer-by-layer are employed for Opto-Electronic applications and in Direct-Methanol Fuel-Cells.
- Study of environmental phenomena through radiochemical approach
- Studies of natural and artificial radionuclides mobility in the environment for their potential danger for man health or environment
- Development of radioanalytical methodologies and monitoring technologies
