Research topics

  • Alberto Fina is an expert in chemistry and materials science, focusing on polymeric materials, nanocomposites and orhganic/inorganic hybrids. His research group is active in the design, research and development of materials, to provide innovative solutions within several industrial applications. Among these, particular focus is onto materials for energy storage and conversion (low temperature heat exchangers, thermochemical energy storage), sustainable structural materials (valorization of natural fibres and and natural polymers, recycling and upcycling of materials at their end of life and wastes, reprocessable crosslinked materials), flame-retarded materials (railway and marine transportation, buildings) and functional coatings (gas barrier, fire protection)
