Research interest and expertise:

Synthesis and characterization of inorganic and organometallic transition metal complexes, to be used as catalysts and redox catalysts. Inorganic Electrochemistry in aqueous and non-aqueous solutions. Electrochemical, photochemical, photoelectrochemical and photophysical properties of transition metal complexes. Techniques like Cyclic Voltammetry, Square Wave Voltammetry, Polarography, Chronoamperometry, AC Impedance Spectroscopy, etc… are routinely employed. In particular, during the recent years the research line has been focused on the electrochemical and photochemical reduction of CO2.

DFT calculations of the electronic and spectroscopic properties (NMR and EPR, IR frequency, UV/Vis absorptions and fluorescence emissions) of transition metal complexes, including their excited states and their reaction mechanisms (Transition States). Periodic DFT calculations in the solid state by Quantum Espresso.

Most of my research has been directed to the syntheses, characterization, DFT calculations, photochemical and electrochemical properties of transition metal complexes. In the last five years the research has been focused on their syntheses and use as catalysts for the photochemical and electrochemical reduction of CO2.

Author or co-author of 1 monograph (Inorganic Electrochemistry, 2011, RSC) and about 95 papers published in international high-impact peer reviewed journals and more than 100 congress communications. He is also the author of a free program for electrochemical digital simulation used worldwide for both teaching and research purposes.

Specific Challenge:Sustainable energy production can only work well when the specific different energy storage challenges are solved. So, solar panels and wind generators do not deliver energy when no sun is shining or no wind is blowing. Batteries may not be the best solution to face all energy storage needs, due to cost, safety and environmental issues. Other technologies have to be developed th ...

Specific Challenge:CCUS in industrial applications faces significant challenges due to its high cost and the fierce international competition in the sectors concerned. However, these sectors currently account for 20% of global CO2 emissions, and in the 2 degree scenario, should represent half of the stored CO2 by 2050. Relevant sectors with high CO2 emissions are for example steel, iron and cement ...

Specific Challenge:Noise and emissions from transport affect seriously people's health and environmental ecosystems requiring the implementation of mitigation measures to achieve a higher reduction in all transport modes. The fast development of technologies that facilitate connectivity of innovative sensors, -both on-board and on the side of the infrastructure- could allow real-time monitoring an ...
