Adriano Zecchina can be considered as one of the pioneers of the application of IR and UV-Vis-NIR to the study of surface species on oxides, dispersed metals and microporous materials like zeolites. The candidate started his scientific career (1963-67) as pure spectroscopist by studying the roto-vibrational spectroscopy of small molecules ( pyrazole, triazole,oxazole etc). Starting from 1967 he moved to the area of vibration and electronic transitions at surfaces.
Among the oldest contributions of the 1972-1985 period ,the discovery of surface states on alakaline earth oxides must be mentioned ( 1974) . AZ was the first to study the vibrational spectroscopy of solid solutions (1978), of adsorbed oxygen on various oxides (1971) and the surface chemistry of metal ions grafted to silica surface (1969).
