The Laboratory of Chemical and Photochemical Reactions and Spectrometric Analysis (PHRASA) at the University of Bergamo is constituted by two units, A3 and B5.
Unit B5 deals with organic chemistry and photochemistry, collaborating with several laboratories in Italy and abroad, with the aim of developing useful new molecules, with applications in the fields of optics, optoelectronics and nanomaterials. Besides, it also works in the fields of photochemical mineralization of organic pollutants in wastewater and of synthetic photocatalysis.
Unit A3 is active in the field of structural analysis by X-ray diffraction, with applications in the characterization of several types of organic and inorganic materials such as ceramics for fuel cells or microcrystalline powders.
X-rays Diffraction Analysis
The PHRASA laboratory can support experimental projects of undergraduate students of Engineering and of Ph.D. students working in the fields of nanotechnology and environmental chemistry.
The PHRASA laboratory collaborates with industrial partners in the field of photocatalysis; it is open to both collaborations and analytical support activities with industrial partners. It is possible to perform X-ray structural analysis and spectroscopic and chromatographic analyses, as well as preparation and characterization of functional nanomaterials.
