Professor Metrangolo's research interests include crystal engineering, fluorine chemistry, supramolecular, and biomimetic materials. In particular he focuses on the study of the self-assembly properties of halocarbons and their interactions with biomolecules for applications in the fields of functional materials and nanomedicine.

Professor Metrangolo is the holder of an European Research Council (ERC-StG2012) grant to carry with the project “FOLDHALO – Folding with Halogen Bonding”, aimed at investigating the relevance of halogen bonding in biological systems. Since 2015 August Aalto univeristy, Department of Applied Physics hosts the other beneficiary part of the grant.

Moreover, he is an author of 182 articles (Source: ISI WoS Core Collection 20-11-15) published in international peer-reviewed journals like Science, Chem. Rev., Chem. Soc. Rev., Nature Chem., Nature Commun., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Mater., Adv. Funct. Mater., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Chem. Eur. J., Chem. Commun., etc. (Sum of the Times Cited: 9007 (7640 without self-citations), H-index = 49). Average citations per article: 49.49; Journal Covers: 14 (1 in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 1 in Adv. Funct. Mater., 3 in ChemComm, 1 in J. Mater. Chem. C, 3 in CrystEngComm, 2 in Cryst. Growth Des., 1 in Org. Biol. Chem., 1 in New J. Chem., 1 in J. Polym. Sci. A); Chapters in international books: 10; International patent applications: 11; Invited oral presentations at meetings: 44 (7 plenary, 19 keynote, and 18 invited). Invited seminars at universities and research institutes: 25. According to the ISI Essential Science Indicators database Prof. Metrangolo is in the Top 1% of the most cited scientists in Chemistry.
