Dr. Roberto Comparelli (born in 1975) got the Ph.D. in Chemistry of Innovative Materials, Università di Bari in 2004. Since 2005 he is Staff Researcher at CNR-IPCF Bari Division.
His expertise covers NC synthesis (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 is interested in the application of photoactive materials in degradation of organic/inorganic pollutants in water and gas matrices.
He has been involved in 5 EU projects (6th and 7th FP), 5 Italian projects and 4 projects funded by Apulia Region.
He is responsible for CNR-IPCF of research contracts with leading multinational companies.
