Brief CV
Vincenzo Palermo obtained his Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 2003 at the University of Bologna, after working at the University of Utrecht (the Netherlands) and at Steacie Institute, National Research Council (NRC Canada).
He is now group leader of the Nanochemistry lab in the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity of National Research Council (CNR Italy).
His main research interests are in the self-assembly of innovative materials and their nanoscale electrical characterization with Scanning Probe Microscopy.
He is coordinator of two EU projects dedicated to the development of new graphene-organic composites for microelectronics using supramolecular chemistry. He is member of the scientific committee of EUROGRAPHENE project, and one of the nine proposers of the GRAPHENE FLAGSHIP initiative.


He is author of more than 60 papers and several reviews on ISI journals (Advanced Materials, JACS, etc.), and has been referee for several ISI journals in the fields of supramolecular chemistry and materials science (Acs-Nano, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Nanoscale, Soft Matter, Synthetic Metals, Surface Science, J. Phys. Chem., Physica E).

Aside from his scientific activity, Vincenzo Palermo is involved in science dissemination and communication, giving seminars on science and history for high-school students and public audience.
