ERC Sectors: PE5_16 Supramolecular chemistry; PE5_6 New materials: oxides, alloys, composite, organic-inorganic hybrid, nanoparticles.

Development of receptors, chemosensors and extractants for target substrates
Synthesis of organic molecular receptors, metal complexes and supramolecular systems for the recognition, extraction and/or signaling of substrates of environmental or biological interest in aqueous solution and complex matrices. Thermodynamic study of receptor:analyte interactions and stability of the corresponding complex.

Materials for gas separation
Synthesis of new molecular materials, to be used alone or as fillers in mixed matrix membranes, for gas separation. The ultimate aim of the research is the development of materials for the capture and separation of carbon dioxide from the air or from mixtures with methane (e.g. biogas / natural gas).
