Descrizione dell'insegnamento

Basic concepts of chemistry and physics.

Diagnostic techniques used to characterize the material components of historically relevant artifacts and the processes that rule the degradation of the materials will be systematically analysed and explained. In particular, not destructive spectroscopic methodologies will be prosed to the students.

During the course, the students will be involved in the study of scientific papers that will be critically analysed highlighting strength and weakness of the proposed researches in order to educate the student to face complex problems and to solve them with powerful analytical methods. 

Frontal lessons will be given. Course attendance is compulsory.

Oral tests will be used to evaluate if the students reached the course's objectives

During the course, concepts of Physical Chemistry will be proposed and particular attention will paid towards the study of the degradation processes that affect the historical artifacts and monuments.

Possible strategies to prevent the effects of external agents on different materials will be examined and the analytical techniques used to characterize them will be considered. Furthermore, chemical physical approaches applied to real cases will be discussed and possible improvements of the adopted strategies will be debated with the students
