The research activity of Dr. A.M. Ferretti is mainly focused on two lines of work. The first is inorganic and organic based nanomaterial characterization through Transmission Electron microscopy and the related micronalytical techniques like EELS (Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy) ESI (Electron spectroscopy image), ED (Electron Diffraction) STEM (Scanning Transmission Electron microscopyne) ed EDX (Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy). Bounded to this focus, there is the development of new method for the morphological and micro-analytical characterization of polymer-based nanostructured materials (OPV nanomaterials, micelles) and extra-cellular vesicles. The second line of work is based on the synthesis of inorganic and organic (polymer and protein based) nanoparticles trough thermal decomposition approach, solvothermal synthesis and miniemulsion approach for application in material science, photovoltaic and biomedical field.
