Research activity
The main role of unity at the University of Palermo is to to plan, prepare and characterize new functional nanostructured systems for cleaning and consolidation particularly of wet archaeological wood.
The study will include a complete thermodynamic characterization of the interaction process solid phase / macromolecule, together with a detailed structural characterization of the mixtures.

1) Nano-materials sustainable with the consolidating and protective properties for underwater archaeological finds;

2) Supramolecular systems (environmentally friendly and low impact) for the cleaning of historical and artistic artefacts.

The effectiveness of the new consolidants will be verified by the application on model systems aged in the laboratory and, on samples of archaeological wood.
