The mission of the Institute is to develop research, both fundamental and applied, together with advanced training, in order to consolidate the institute as a center of scientific research with a proven national and international reputation. Activities are aimed at maintaining ICCOM at the forefront in the following fields of scientific research in the molecular sciences:
a) new sustainable chemical processes with high efficiency and selectivity through the optimization of existing catalytic processes and stoichiometry, and through the implementation of new processes.
b) The application of electrocatalysis and photocatalysis in the energy sector, particularly in the field of fuel cells and hydrogen production.
c) The application of electrocatalysis and photocatalysis in the energy sector, particularly in the field of fuel cells and hydrogen production.
d) Hydrogen chemistry and technology: production, storage and exploitation in fuel cells.
e) Photovoltaic solar cells: organic and organometallic compounds for new generation solar cells.
f) CO2 chemistry and technology: valorization (CCU) and capture (CCS) processes.
g) Organic, inorganic and hybrid polymeric materials with specific functional properties. Synthesis, characterization and post functionalization.
h) Advanced analytical techniques for the environment, heath and for the conservation of the artistic and cultural patrimony.
i) Design and development of specialized scientific instrumentation.
j) Theoretical and computational chemistry for the predictive modeling of chemical reactivity and functionality.
