My research activity focuses on formation and oxidation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and carbonaceous particles (soot) in laminar flames. Particular attention in being given to study the main chemical and physical pathways of large aromatic species and their transition from gas-phase to solid-state in combustion processes, in order to identify the best operative conditions for in-flame synthesis of carbon nanomaterials with specific electronic and optical properties, attractive for industrial applications.
