Full professor
Alessandra Gentili is a full professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Rome La Sapienza, where she received her Master’s degree, Magna cum Laude, in Industrial Chemistry and her PhD degree in Chemical Sciences. Previously, she was a researcher from 1999 to 2004 and associate professor from 2005 to 03/2022. She is Director of the advanced professional course "Scientific investigation techniques in the food sector" of Sapienza University. She was also the head of Hydro-Eco, a Sapienza research center (2019-2022). Currently, she teaches "Analytical Chemistry III with laboratory" for the Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry (A-DE channel) and “Development and Validation of Analytical Methods for Real Matrices with lab” for the Master Degree in Analytical Chemistry. She is a member of the Doctorate Committee of the PhD Program in "Chemical Science" as well as of the Monitoring Committee -Teaching of the Science Faculty. The results of her research have been published over 144 papers on international journals and 11 chapters on international books (h-index 35; 4500 citations ). She is a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Chromatography A, Journal of Chromatography Open, and Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis Open. She has collaborated with national (CNR; UNICATT Cord and Neonatology Unit of Policlinico Gemelli, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Roma) and international (Universidad de Alcalá, Madrid, Spain; Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientifica, Barcelona, Spain; "Arca La Sapienza" project, Italy-Ecuador; University of la Laguna, Spain, University of Tbilisi, Georgia) Universities and Research Centres. In 2006, she was invited by the IIQAB-CSIC to join the European network of reference laboratories GC-MS and LC-MS, as part of the project NORMAN.

Research activity: 
Prof. Alessandra Gentili is responsible for the research group (GreenLab) involved in the development of new analytical methodologies, based on original extraction and separative methods, for solving problems in different areas of Chemistry, in particular Food Chemistry, Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Environmental Chemistry. His research topics include the preparation of sorbent materials and solvent systems from natural sources or waste products. He is a member of “The Sample Preparation Study Group and Network” of EuChemS. An international expert in the field of vitamin and carotenoid analysis, she has developed methods aimed at defining the "profile" of organic micronutrients in food and biological matrices. From 2013 to 2015, her research group participated in the KEQAS (vitamin K External Quality Assurance Scheme), an international system managed by the Nutristasis Unit (Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital, London, United Kingdom) that monitors and reports on accuracy of the vitamin K analysis.
