Research topics

  • purification of pharmaceutical downstreams by liquid chromatography
  • biomedical nanotechnologies: preparation and testing of active polymeric nanoparticles with modified surface to be used for tumour local therapy and diagnosis; controlled release of drugs
  • drying and freeze-drying: drying of pharmaceutical carriers at low temperature, freeze-drying process optimisation, in particular for pharmaceutical proteins. Development of new monitoring and control systems
  • dynamics and control of forced unsteady-state reactors: feasibility of the reverse-flow reactor and of the simulated-moving-bed (or ring-reactor network) for synthesis reactions and for the NOx abatement; investigation of the reactor dynamic behaviour and of possible control systems
  • investigation and modelling of turbulent reacting flows, and synthesis of nanostructured ceramic materials: development of new micromixing models, coupling of sub-grid models in CFD codes; experimental investigation of interaction between fast reactions and hydrodynamics both in homogeneous systems and in case of formation of a new phase (precipitation), also with variable rheology. Methods for the solution of population balances, and their coupling with CFD codes. Development of crystallisation, precipitation and flame synthesis processes. Process scale-up
  • catalytic combustion of waste gases and modelling of heterogeneous catalytic reactors: investigation of the mixture effects in the catalytic destruction of organic waste gases, and study of catalytic combustion with dynamic techniques; evaluation of the transport coefficients in the monolithic reactors; study of perovskite-type catalysts for low temperature destruction of chlorinated wastes. Development of innovative technologies: thermally stabilised catalytic combustors for the destruction of organic chlorinated wastes; forced unsteady state catalytic combustors for the destruction of lean and extra-lean waste gases.
  • mixing in multiphase systems: hydrodynamics of solid-liquid systems in stirred apparatus, mixing of granular solids
