Curriculum vitae

Maria Carmela Iapalucci graduated in Industrial Chemistry in the Faculty of Industrial Chemistry, University of Bologna, on 13 March 1987, with an experimental thesis on “synthesis and resolution of key intermediates in the synthesis of grandisol”, under the supervision of Prof. G. Rosini. On 1987, she worked on the MAS project (production process of methanol and higher alcohols) promoted by Snamprogetti, at the Department of Industrial Chemistry, University of Bologna. On 1988, she cooperated to the EEC Brite project: "simultaneous removal of NOx and SO2 through mobile bed catalytic processes" at the Department of Industrial Chemistry, University of Bologna. On 1992, she achieved the PhD in Chemistry with a thesis on: "Iron and Nickel carbonyl clusters with atoms belonging the XIII and XV Group", under the supervision of Professor G. Longoni. On 1994, she was visiting scientist at the Lund University (Sweden). From 1992 to 2001, she was a Research Assistant at the Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry, Bologna University. Since October 2001, she is an Associate Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry (Chim03) at the department of Industrial Chemistry, Bologna University. She is author of 130 peer-reviewed articles published on international journals.

The research interest lie in the synthesis, characterization and chemical reactivity of metal carbonyl clusters with medium-high nuclearity. More specifically in: 1) nano-and micro-wire molecular semiconductors and conductors; 2) salts charge-transfer ( CT) and electron-transfer (ET) consisting of cluster-anions redox-active and cations redox-active; 3) new molecular capacitor; 4) application of metal carbonyl clusters in nanotechnologies and catalysis; 5) synthesis of metal nanoparticles using clusters as precursors.
