Research Equipments and laboratories
The Department of Chemistry is equipped with the following infrastructures and research laboratories.
The Department contributes to the quality of scientific research with the support of laboratories and instruments, some of which are managed in open access to encourage use by the largest number of researchers possible.
Some instruments can also be used by third parties: companies and other organizational entities that need to test prototypes, carry out tests, analyzes, measurements and experiments.
For these there is a tab with applications, services and contacts.

- Molecular and material characterization techniques Tecniche di caratterizzazione molecolare e dei materiali
- Complete list Elenco completo
- Organic and inorganic synthesis laboratories
laboratories with advanced equipment that allows multi-step organic synthesis, chromatographic separations, chemical reactions in the vapor phase, microwave-assisted synthesis.
- Electronic and vibrational spectroscopy laboratories
There are more than 40 instruments in the Department, which include UV-visible, infrared, fluorescence and Raman spectrometers, the latter with excitation sources ranging from near infrared to ultraviolet.
- Electron microscopy laboratory
The lab includes three electron microscopes fully equipped for the preparation of the samples. The instrumentation includes a UHR-TEM microscope (300 kV) with associated X-EDS spectrometer, a variable pressure SEM microscope, also equipped with EDS and a conventional SEM microscope with EDS for microanalysis.
- Magnetic resonance laboratory
The department has developed nuclear and electronic magnetic resonance techniques (NMR and EPR). There are three NMR spectrometers, two operating at 400 MHz, one of which is dedicated to solid state and one spectrometer operating at 200 MHz. There are also four EPR spectrometers including a pulsed EPR / ENDOR instrument operating at 9.5 and 35 GHz
- X-ray diffraction laboratory
The diffraction techniques available include five instruments for the analysis of single crystals and / or powders. Different configurations are available with different anti-cathodes and measurements at different temperatures are possible
- Analytical chemistry laboratories
Analytical and immunoanalytical techniques are widely represented and include mass spectrometry techniques coupled to gas / liquid chromatography; inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES); graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy (GF-AAS); voltammetry of anodic, cathodic and cathodic adsorptive stripping (ASV, CSV, AdSV) with conventional static drop of mercury electrodes (HMDE); anodic stripping voltammetry with nanostructured sensors; potentiometry.
- Computational chemistry laboratory
The Department hosts two workstations (14, 24 and 74 nodes) used for the calculation and visualization of complex structures.
