Dr. Federica Valentini is graduated in Chemistry (on 14th October, 1999) in Sapienza University of Rome (Italy). Her thesis work concerned the study of the role of Nitrous Acid (HONO), in the Arctic troposphere, during the Polar Sunrise (1998-1999).
During 2000-2003 period, Dr. F. Valentini received the PhD in Chemical Sciences at Tor Vergata University, Rome (Italy), working on Electrochemical Immunosensors dedicated to the quantitative detection of 17-β-estradiol, in waste water systems.
During 2005 year, Dr. F. Valentini worked at the University of Arizona State (USA), especially in Biodesign Institute, working on new strategies for the electrochemical production of Nanomotors and Nanomachines, for their analytical applications in Cultural Heritage, Sensors field and Nano Medicine areas.
On 24th March, 2010 Dr. F. Valentini received the second degree in Sciences and Materials Technology, at Tor Vergata University, Rome (Italy), working with a new synthetic route for the graphene and graphene derivatives fabrication, dedicated to several analytical applications, specific for the Sensor assembly, Cultural Heritage restoration and conservation, and Nano Medicine devices.
Employment at Tor Vergata University Rome (Italy)
From 5th November 2007 to today (2018 current year), Dr. F. Valentini was a Full Time Researcher, associated to the Sciences and Chemical Technologies Department, at Tor Vergata University Rome (Italy).
Since 2014, she is a member of the Faculty Board of the international PhD program Environmental, Energy and Health, at Sciences and Chemical technologies Department, in Tor Vergata University Rome (Italy).
Since 2003, Dr. F. Valentini works in the Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies scientific areas, providing new synthetic strategies for the mass production of innovative nanomaterials, mainly dedicated to the Sensors assembly, Cultural Heritage Restoration/Conservation and Nano Medicine devices. Especially, physical, electrochemical and chemical routes were applied for the large scale fabrication of nanomaterials. These latter are based on carbon nano allotropes; metallic nanoparticles; hybrid metallic asymmetric nanowires; nanocomposites; nanoBiopolymers.
Dr. F Valentini presents a consolidated background also in the context of the chemical functionalization of the cited nanomaterials, and their morphological and structural characterization, employing the most advanced high resolution materials technology.
