Chemical sciences and materials technology

These research topics -although pertaining to many Cnr research groups  and Institutes- find a systematic exploitation in the Cnr Department of chemical science and materials technology (Dsctm).

Research topics range from sustainable chemistry to advanced materials and key enabling technologies, as well as nanomedicine. A great importance has also the area of biotechnologies and bio-materials, that situates the Department in an advanced position in the 'living technologies' field, particularly for the development of nanotechnologies bottom-up with an high excellence impact in flexible electronic and optoelectronics, hydrogen technology and fuel cells, sustainable processes with high efficiency and new generation manufacturing.
