Filippo Monti is permanent researcher at the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity of the National Research Council of Italy. His main research interests concern the photophysical and photochemical characterisation of supramolecular systems and of transition-metal complexes for applications in light-to-energy conversion, lighting technologies and photocatalysis.
He has authored more than 40 scientific publications on international peer-reviewed journals (H-index = 19, collecting more than 1500 citations, Scopus) and has been invited to present his research activity at 6 national and international conferences. He has also received several awards, among them the "GIF Young Investigator Award 2016" and a special mention for the "European Young Chemist Award 2016".
A complete list of my publications can be found on my ORCID webpage.
Filippo Monti was born in Bologna in 1985. He got the Bachelor Degree in Industrial Chemistry in 2007 and the Master Degree in 2009, both from the University of Bologna. From 2007 to 2009 he was also fellow of the Collegio Superiore, the School of Excellence of the University of Bologna.
In 2013 he obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences from the University of Bologna, under the supervision of Paola Ceroni, working on ionic cyclometalated Ir(III) complexes for light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs). His research activity was carried out under the guidance of Nicola Armaroli at the National Research Council of Italy in the frame of the European project CELLO. The main goal of this project was to develop flexible and large-area lighting sources based on LECs that rely on phosphorescent ionic transition-metal complexes as single active component.
From March 2013 to December 2014, he was a research fellow at the Department of Chemistry "Giacomo Ciamician". While, from January 2015 to March 2017, he had the same role at the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity of the National Research Council of Italy (Bologna Research Area). From May 2017 to December 2018, he was fixed-term researcher in the same institute, becoming a permanent researcher from January 2019.
His current research interests concern the photophysical and photochemical characterisation (under both the experimental and the theoretical point of view) of supramolecular systems and transition-metal complexes for light-to-energy conversion, lighting technologies and photocatalysis.
