Research interest

I have always applied spectroscopic methods in order to achieve a detailed understanding of the physicochemical nature heterogeneous catalysts and adsorbents such as titanosilicates, Fe-Zeolites, acid zeolites, Cu-exchanged zeolites, and porous metalorganic frameworks (MOFs).

I have developed a versatile experimental platform based on the combined use of laboratory spectroscopies and advanced techniques available at the synchrotron beamlines in a controlled atmosphere. The commune denominator of my interests is the broad concept of sustainability, strongly interconnected with the energy efficiency and of the integration of resources (possibly renewable) in order to allow a sustainable growth of our society.
