Research topics

  • In the area of thermal comfort, research activity is concerned with the assessment of heat exchange between the body and the environment, focusing on the fundamental role of clothing in terms of thermal and evaporative resistance. In addition to the company-funded activities, the research is based on academic collaboration with colleagues from other scientific fields, from the chemistry and technology of materials and the medical field, making the research activity multidisciplinary and collaborative.
  • Development of dyeing and finishing processes for textile substrates using supercritical and/or liquid carbon dioxide as solvent. The analysis of the subject concerned thermodynamic aspects, such as measuring the solubility and partition coefficient of dyes between bath and fibre, the development of correlations for predicting the solubility of dyes, and more purely technical aspects, such as the design of equipment for dyeing and washing. Since 2018 this line of research has evolved thanks to international collaboration within the SMDTex international PhD project. The aim is to develop advanced functionalisations using photochromic dyes and multifunctional dyes with antibacterial properties.
