Research activity
The role of Perugia Research Unit is to develop integrated spectroscopic methods for:
1) in situ study of paintings degradation processes;
2) the control of cleaning, consolidation and protection systems.

1) study (in situ) of paintings’ alteration processes in particular:
- Study of degradation phenomena induced by the interaction of copper-based pigments with lipid binders; (infrared non-invasive techniques will be employed to detect possible forms of chelation and / or saponification. IR, Raman and XRD techniques will be used to study the changes in the crystal structure of the pigments).
- Study of photophysical and photochemical properties of eosin-Y

2) develop of integrated analytical methods to map the distribution of organic materials used in restored stone.
