Research Topics


  • Thermal decomposition process modelling of unstable compounds or reactive mixtures of industrial interest with particular attention paid toward autocatalytic processes and development of reliable tools for the prediction of thermal explosion parameters.


  • Development of reliable experimental protocols for the toxicological characterization of the thermal decomposition products


  • Study and characterization of the explosive behaviour of complex hybrid systems (one or more combustible powders mixed with gaseous fuels in air or other oxidizing gases)


  • Industrial consulting activities on safety concerns




Biographical Notes


Roberto Sanchirico is a Chemical Engineer graduated at University of Naples “Federico II”. He received his MSc with a thesis on “Selective reduction of NOx over V2V5/TiO2 catalysts prepared by means of the adsorption at equilibrium method” (advisor prof. Gennaro Russo). In 2001 he joined as full researcher the Institute of Research on Combustion (IRC/CNR).  His principal scientific interests are mainly focused on industrial chemical safety concerns. His recent activities are concerned with the thermokinetic characterization of thermally unstable systems and on the study of the explosive behaviour of complex hybrid systems.
