Francesco Frusteri graduated in industrial chemistry at Messina University, Messina, Italy, in 1982. He achieved a Postdoctoral degree in catalytic technologies at Messina University in 1985. For several years, within the work activities performed at the Institute of Advanced Technologies for Energy (CNR-ITAE) he has been acting as coordinator of work groups involved in research activities regarding energy and safety fields. He is responsible for several international and national research projects. In particular, Frusteri showed interest in kinetics evaluation of several processes, catalysts development, and reactor design. He is involved in the individualisation of innovative catalytic systems adequate to overcome several technological problems of different industrial processes. H2 production, fuel cell systems, and biofuel production are some of the main research topics of interest for Frusteri. He is also an expert in the use of several techniques for the bulk and surface characterization of materials useful for catalytic processes. Frusteri is involved in teaching activity in different professional courses in the environmental field. He acts as referee of several international journals in the field of catalysis. He is a Member of the American Chemical Society and Italian Chemical Society. The research activity of Frusteri allowed the publication of 306 papers including 129 papers in international journals, 2 in national journals, 4 patents, and 166 international and national congress and several scientific reports. He attended several scientific meeting as speaker, invited speaker, and chairman.
