Research Activities

Controlled radical polymerizations

Controlled radical Polymerizations are the tool of choice to build advanced functional materials for all technological applications (biomedical, electronics, elastomers etc.). We develop new electrochemical methods to perform controlled radical polymerizations in solution and on surfaces.

Photo - Electrocatalysis

We combine photon and electrons in the same reaction to increase the activity and selectivity of photocatalysts, reaching unprecedented levels of control and reactivity over polymerization reactions and organic transformations.
