The ANTICARB Virtual Tour runs through the first floor of the TELLUS building at the University of Milano-Bicocca

The Tour provides access to the CHEMISTRY laboratory, the laboratory for X-RAY analysis, and the laboratory for analysis through OPTICAL MICROSCOPY. ANTICARB also exploits the Microscopy Platform at Milano-Bicocca (Piattaforma di Microscopia di Milano-Bicocca), an interdepartmental infrastructure hosting scanning and transmission electron microscopes, as well as equipment necessary for sample preparation for this type of analysis.

CHEMISTRY Laboratory

Hydrothermal and solvothermal synthesis laboratory using both traditional thermal heating and microwave-assisted heating.

XRF and XRD Laboratory

X-ray sources are used to determine the elemental composition and crystalline phases present in the samples.


A collection of microscopes for the manipulation of microcrystals and their optical morphological and structural analysis.
