Le informazioni pubblicate in questa pagina sono gestite in completa autonomia da MARIA LUCIA CURRI il/la quale se ne assume ogni responsabilità

Senior scientist IPCF CNR, Bari PhD in Chemistry 1997 at University of Bari (Italy), Currently responsible at CNR IPCF Bari Division for the material chemistry activities aiming to design, fabricate and process inorganic solids at the nanoscale for obtaining nanostructured and multifunctional materials both for fundamental and application studies. She is involved in development of synthetic strategies for preparation of colloidal nanocrystal based inorganic materials for photocatalytic, optoelectronic, (bio)sensing and biomedical applications. She has been and is PI for CNR IPCF Bari in several European and National research projects, coordinating the European Project 7th FP LIMPID "Nanocomposite Materials for Photocatalytic Degradation of Pollutants". M. Lucia Curri has been reviewer for many high impact journals, evaluator of international project proposals and member of conference committees and scientific panels. She is also active in teaching and tutorial activities.

Aree di interesse:

Expertise in material chemistry activities aiming to design, fabricate and process inorganic solids at the nanoscale. The main activities have include: -Synthesis of nanoparticles, also in quantum confinement regime, with control on size shape and crystalline phase, in order to finely tune their chemical-physical properties -Functionalization of the nanoparticles with surface chemistry exchange procedures -Characterization of the colloidal nanoparticles with spectroscopical UV-vis-NIR absorption, luminescence, FTIR, XPS), structural (transmission microscope, X-ray powder diffraction) and morphological (AFM) techniques -Organization in mesoscopical structures (films, 2/3 D assemblies, polymer based nanocomposites, hybrid electrodes) of the prepared nano-objects with tailored functional properties -Investigation of the unusual size-and shape-dependent (photo)catalytic and opto-electronic properties of the newly fabricated nanostructured materials carried out to assess their technological potential for their use in environmental technologies (water treatments and sensing applications) and their integration in systems and devices
