Project Coordinator, Associate Professor at University of Sassari, Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Italy
His research activity focuses on solid-state and materials chemistry matters, and in particular on:
I) synthesis, structural and thermodynamic characterization of metastable materials (nanostructured, quasicrystalline, and amorphous phases);
II) investigation of materials and methodologies for hydrogen storage;
III) mechanochemical processes: heterogeneous phase chemical reactions and self sustaining reactions induced by external mechanical energy;
IV) synthesis and characterization of bi- and multi-component solid catalysts;
V) development of experimental procedures and protocols for the direct control of dynamic milling parameters during mechanochemical .processes.
The research activity is carried out also in collaboration with several international research centres and it is documented by 70 papers published in peer reviewed international journals, as well as by oral and invited contributions given in several international conferences. He is a member of the International Scientific
Committee of the "International Symposia on Electrochemical/Chemical Reactivity of Novel Materials".
