Congratulations to Giammarco Meloni for winning an oral prize at NGCHEM 2022

Congratulations to Giammarco Meloni for winning an oral prize at NGCHEM 2022 for his talk entitled “Non-noble metal complexes with NHC-phenolate ligands: new catalysts for CO2 chemical valorization”.

On the left Luca Pala, Fluorsid R&D director; on the right Giammarco Meloni, PhD Student in our group.

Congratulations to Andrea and Paolo!

Andrea Biffis is now full professor and our colleague Paolo Centomo has been promoted to associate professor! Congratulations to both of them and thanks for the amazing lunch!!

Open positions

Postdoc position

A postdoc position on the “Synthesis and characterization of (electro)chemiluminescent dyes” to carry out research activity related to the project “BioPoweredCL” “Bright and biologically powered chemiluminescent labels for cell and tissue imaging” has been opened.
