Dipartimento di Chimica e Chimica Industriale, Universita di Pisa, Italy

Data Center Description
There are five main thematic areas of the research in the Department of Chemistry in Pisa: Analytical Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry.
The research activities in all these areas are both of applied and fundamental nature, with strong collaborations with national and international laboratories, industries, and other universities. The international relations are very active both at the research level (with many collaborations between research groups in the Department and important research groups in Italy and abroad) and at the educational level with students that spend part of their curriculum in other universities.

The research activity can be classified according to the following thematic areas:
Analytical Chemistry
Environment; Cultural heritage; Analytical chemistry applied to foods, biomedicine, and human health; Research on reactivity kinetics in biological systems.

Physical Chemistry
Formulation of theoretical approaches and development of computational methodologies in molecular modeling; Magnetic Resonance and its applications to materials and liquid crystals; Thermodynamics of solvation processes; Thermodynamics and Spectroscopy of biological systems and food.

Industrial Chemistry
Catalysts and their application in the synthesis of organic molecules and macromolecules; Polymeric materials, biomaterials, materials for electronic devices, medical products, textiles, tanning and resins.

Inorganic Chemistry
Synthesis of inorganic and metal-organic compounds; Reactivity of metal-coordinated ligands and Catalysis; Nano-structured materials; Glasses; Recycling of precious metals from various matrices.

Organic Chemistry
Spectroscopic analysis of organic molecules with particular attention to systems of biological, biomedical and agricultural interest; Catalysis with Metal-Atoms systems; Synthesis of pheromones, fungicides and anti-carcinogens; Development of new synthetic methodologies based on the use of transition metal compounds.
