Curriculum vitae:
Dr. Bontempelli is full professor of Analytical Chemistry. For more than fourthy years his research activity has been directed to studies concerning analytical problems, in particular electroanalytical topics. He is author of about 130 scientific publications (all on international journals) in this field and of  about 100 communications at national and international scientific Meetings. His scientific interest includes mainly the following subjects:
(a) mechanisms involved in electrochemical processes;
(b) development and optimization of electroanalytical methods;
(c) electrocatalysis;
(d) electroanalytical sensors for environmental and food analysis;
(e) sensors based on modified electrodes for trace analysis in different materials;
(f) redox properties of  biochemically active species;
(g) environmental and food analysis.
