Diana Sannino received a degree in industrial chemistry at University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, in 1991. In 1998, Sannino received D.Phil. degree in engineering of thermomechanical systems, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy, and Joint Doctoral Course, University of Salerno, Salerno, Italy. In 1999, Sannino became an Assistant Professor of Industrial and Technological Chemistry at Engineering Faculty of University of Salerno, Italy, and in 2007 she became an Associate Professor of Industrial and Technological Chemistry (ING/IND27) at the Engineering Faculty of University of Salerno, Italy. She is Member of the Italian Association of Chemical Engineering (AIDIC), Italian Chemical Society (SCI) of the International Zeolites Association (IZA), of the American Chemical Society (ACS), of Consortium INSTM, and of Centre Nano Mates. Her research is mainly developed in the field of the heterogeneous catalysis, with particular emphasis devoted to the environmental depollution. The main lines of research concern the treatment of emissions of nitrogen oxides from combustion processes coming from stationary sources or automotive engines, the catalytic combustion of hydrocarbons, the synthesis and the characterization of nanomaterials and nanocomposites, the photocatalysis for sustainable chemistry and for environmental processes, the pollutants removal in liquid wastes, and the innovation in tanning processes for the reduction of their environmental impact. The research work is documented by over 200 publications, including over 70 articles in international journals, book chapter, and Italian, Russian, and PCT patents.
