Personal profile

Roberto Comparelli

The information published in this page are entirely managed by ROBERTO COMPARELLI who is completely responsible for it.

Dr. Roberto Comparelli (degree in Chemistry, 2001) got the Ph.D. in Chemistry of Innovative Materials at University of Bari (Italy) in 2004. Since 2005 he is Staff Researcher at Italian National Research Council - Institute for Physical and Chemical Processes, Bari Division, Italy (CNR-IPCF). His expertise covers nanocrystal (NC) synthesis by wet chemistry (photoactive or magnetic oxides, II-VI semiconductors, metals), characterization (TEM, SEM, AFM, FT-IR, UV-Vis-NIR, PL) and their surface engineering. He is interested in NC incorporation in polymer matrices, application in optoelectronic, self-assembly, biological and environmental fields. In particular, he has strong background in the application of photoactive NCs in degradation of organic/inorganic pollutants in water and gas matrices and in the preparation and characterization of NC-based self-cleaning coatings. He has been involved in 5 EU projects (6th and 7th FP), 9 Italian projects and 6 projects funded by Apulia Region. He is the scientific director of research contracts with multinational companies aiming at the synthesis and characterization of innovative nanomaterials. He is member of the editorial board of "Journal of Chemistry" (ISSN online: 2090-9071; doi:10.1155/2962), "Journal of Nanostructure in Chemistry" (ISSN online: 2193-8865), and Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352). Referee for several high impact factor journals (ACS, Elsevier, RSC, Springer, etc.) He has co-authored over 100 papers (including 75 JCR publications, 7 book chapters, 1 international patent) and more than 150 contributions to National and International Congresses and Symposia also with invited talks.
