Insegnamenti tenuti presso altri dipartimenti

Recent research activities concerned the reclamation of contaminated sites and the measurement and the chemical characterization of micrometric and sub-micrometric particles.

Submicrometric (respiratory) particles carry toxic and mutagenic organic substances into the body. Therefore, studies on the chemical composition are in progress in relation to the size (0.02-0.5 micron) and the origin of these particles.

Research is also ongoing about the spread of inorganic and organic nanoparticles, which are responsible for serious pathologies and on which limited information is available. Also, virtually no concentration data is available in our area.
