Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), is used in our laboratory to characterize paramagnetic species (including organic free radicals) containing one or more unpaired electrons. The use of this technique allows to determine the electronic properties, the life time and the reactivity of the radical species in question. EPR spectroscopy is also used for the study of supramolecular architectures through the introduction of suitable paramagnetic probes. In this way it is possible to obtain information about non-covalent complexes that are complementary to those obtained with traditional spectroscopy techniques.

Research interests

EPR Spectroscopy

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), which is also called electron spin resonance (ESR), is a spectroscopic technique responsive to transitions involving unpaired electrons and therefore can be used for paramagnetic species


Supramolecular Chemistry

Mechanically interlocked molecular (MIM) architectures are examples of molecules where each molecular component is connected not through traditional bonds, but instead as a consequence of their topology.


Free Radicals Reactivity

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) is extensively employed in our laboratory for the characterized of neutral and charged organic free radicals.
