DIPARTIMENTO DI CHIMICA, MATERIALI E INGEGNERIA CHIMICA "GIULIO NATTA"

Surface and Electrochemical Engineering Laboratory

  • subjectSkills

    SEE Lab has been founded to bring innovation in the field of surface engineering and applied electrochemistry, developing new functional and decorative coatings, and introducing new techniques, materials and devices for the production and storage of energy. Our strengths are the multidisciplinary approach, the transversal skills and the ability to combine different concepts. The strong connection with both International research institutes and industry gives a wider perspective on scientific research and on the integrated development of national and European projects, in cooperation with companies. Due to the scientific and industrial interests related to energy production, the e-lite lab (Electrochemical Innovative Technologies for Energy) has been founded for the development and study of new generation electrochemical devices for energy storage, to the synthesis of materials for the electrochemical and photoelectrochemical hydrogen production and to the capture and reduction of CO2.

  • subjectResearch activities
    • Advanced coatings: development of advanced surface treatments able to satisfy the high industrial demand for high-tech solutions in surface engineering. The research activity in this field is focused both on the development of anti-wetting and anti-wear functional coatings for oil&gas and microelectronics (MEMS) industrial field and on metal coatings for decorative purposes using chemical, electrochemical and vapor phase techniques.
    • Additive manufacturing: design and implementation of additive manufacturing techniques; use of inkjet printing for sensors and flexible batteries production for wearable electronics and smart fabrics development. Post-treatment of 3D printed products, in particular polymers.
    • Batteries: redox flow batteries, materials for Li and Na ions batteries, metal-air batteries
    • Sensors: development of new applications and devices in the field of sensors with mixed oxides for the detection of humidity, gases and molecules.
