His main research topics are Chemistry of Materials and Surface Chemistry with prevailing interest for determining the structure of active sites in adsorption phenomena and catalytic processes. Recently he has become more active in the synthesis and characterization of inorganic micro- and mesoporous materials and in nanocomposites, also in the field of vectors in biologic systems. The experience on surfaces has been useful for the characterization of materials in the field of Artworks.

He is author of 277 scientific publications on international journals and editor of several books. He is co-editor of the journal “Research on Chemical Intermediates”.

He has been visiting professor at several institutions, and particularly at UKAEA (Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell, Oxford), performing research in the field of photoluminescence of solids in collaboration with the late Prof. A. J. Tench. He is very active in international collaborations including Prof. Sir J.M.Thomas, Prof. Murujesan, Prof. M. Che, Prof. M. Ampo, Prof. M. Yamashita, Prof. E. Iglesia, Prof. V.
