Presentation: Controlling crystallization and properties of polyolefins through design of the molecular structure and of suitable bias
Claudio De Rosa is Full Professor of Industrial Chemistry at the University of Naples Federico II. He received the Master Degree in Chemistry in 1983 (Magna Cum Laude) and the Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1989 at University of Naples. He was assistant professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Naples from 1990 to 1992 and Associate Professor of Industrial Chemistry from 1992 to 2002. He is full Professor of Industrial Chemistry since 2002. He served as head of the Chemistry Department of the University of Naples Federico II from 2008 to 2015. He spent almost two years as visiting scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts (1998-1999). His research activity comprises the study of the crystal structure of polymers and the interplay between physical properties and molecular structure of polymers and the study of nanostructures produced by semicrystalline block copolymers. He is member of the Editorial Board of “Macromolecules” (2003-2006), “Polymer” (since 2004), “The Open Material Science Journal” (since 2009) and “Polymer Crystallization” (since 2018). He is author of about 290 papers published in international scientific journals and one book titled “Crystals and Crystallinity in Polymers” published by Wiley in 2014.
