I am presenting with great enthusiasm but also with humility. I have some debts to the chemical for which it is worth studying and implementing a project, a real dream. I live to make me company even in my years to come. I am interested in electrochemistry, green chemistry and sustainable chemistry. I was supervisor for the chemical for about 9 years at the University of Messina. I was the teacher of chemistry in the secondary school.

How specific interest to IYC 2011 I have a project for the Green Energy on the production of energy from aluminum scrap. It is a fuel cell system Al / air very interesting from the educational perspective. I also created a method with conductimetric determination of the concentration of CO2 in the air ambient with a 3 liter bottle. This project is nearing completion for electronic parts.As mentioned I like to generate enthusiasm for the creative chemistry of today and tomorrow and encourage students to study chemistry.

For students applying to the study of chemistry is necessary to build trust, reduce the technical difficulties and mathematical and increase the capacity manuals and logic.
