Academic discipline: CHIM/02 Physical Chemistry


Supramolecular, nanostructured and electrocatalytic systems. Electrochemical and photophysical investigation of molecular, photoactive dyad and electrocatalytic systems based on metal transition complexes, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, planar and bowl-shaped polyaromatic systems.

Electrochemiluminescence. Investigation of the physical chemical properties of new electrochemiluminescent species and materials for exploiting lab-on-chip systems.

Modification of conductor and semiconductor  electrodes. Study of SAM of: (i) alkanethiol on gold, (ii)  metal alkoxides for the functionalization of metal oxide semiconductors, (iii) electroactivation of aryldiazonium salts and amines on carbon surfaces, (iv) photoactivation of 1-akenes on silicon.

Scanning probe microscopies. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) are used to investigate the surface modified electrodes and for the micro- and nanopatterning.

Molecular interlocked architectures. Investigation of the electrochemical and spectroscopic properties of interlocked systems both in solution and immobilized on surfaces, which can undergo electrochemical shuttling process.
