Dr. Pamela Pilutti (MIUR fellowship,
PRIN PROJECT SITECOS)
Dr. Pilutti graduated in 2002 under the
supervision of Prof. Gramatica with a thesis on atmospheric
degradation QSAR modelling of Volatile Organic Compounds.
Since then she collaborated with the QSAR Research Unit, with
some fellowships, developing QSAR models of different kinetic
reaction rate constants for tropospheric degradation by OH,
nitrate radicals and ozone. She developed also tools for the
global atmospheric persistence/degradability (ATPIN/ATDIN).
Recently, in the SITECOS project of PRIN 2004-06, she has
developed QSAR models on mutagenicity/genotoxicity of PAH and
Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PAC), sorbed on Particulate
