Research Interests
The scientific interests of Prof. Daniela Ascenzi are in the field of gas-phase physical chemistry and her main research fields are:

  • elementary processes and reaction dynamics in the gas phase
  • astrochemistry: chemical reactions in the interstellar space and planetary atmospheres
  • structure and reactivity of singly and multiply charged ions
  • chemical synthesis in cold plasmas
  • photoionization and photodissociation dynamics via lasers and synchrotron radiation
  • mass spectrometry and molecular beam techniques
