Ricerca scientifica: Laboratori :Chimica
The Research Centre, established in 1974 in the Department of Organic Chemistry by CNR and the University of Florence has its own laboratories in the centre of the town.
Il nuovo Dipartimento di Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica “Giulio Natta” è stato costituito recentemente per confluenza dei tre Dipartimenti di Chimica, di Chimica Fisica Applicata e di Chimica Industriale e Ingegneria Chimica “Giulio Natta” preesistenti. Tale aggregazione è intesa a realizzare importanti sinergie nell’attività di ricerca, consentendo lo sviluppo di settori di ricerca di alta innovazione e interdisciplinarità, un più razionale uso delle risorse e l’acquisto di nuove grandi apparecchiature

Stone Consolidating Materials A Status Report
MOLART is a 5-year co-operative project between art historians, restorers, analytical chemists and technical physicists funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The project was launched on 1 February 1995.The object of MOLART is the development of a scientific framework for the conservation of painted art on the molecular level. The focus of MOLART is the determination of the present chemical and physical condition of works of art produced in the period from the 15th to the 20th century.
This research programme was funded by Historic Scotland. The research programme was carried out at The Robert Gordon University and at the Building Research Establishment.. The aim of the research was to examine the effects of various consolidants and water repellents on Scottish building sandstones. Copies of the research results can be obtained from Historic Scotland.
