Maurizio Benaglia's Biography

Maurizio Benaglia, Full Professor of Organic Chemistry, Dipartimento di Chimica, Università degli Studi di Milano

After completing his PhD in Organic Chemistry at Università degli Studi di Milano and postdoctoral studies at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) under the supervision of Prof. J. Siegel, in 2006 Maurizio Benaglia was promoted to associate professor and in 2015 to Full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Dipartimento di Chimica, Università degli Studi di Milano. In 2001 he won the “Giacomo Ciamician” Medal of the Italian Chemical Society. He has been awarded by American chemical society as author on one of 20 most cited papers in Organic Letters in 2006-2009 years, by Elsevier as author of one of 50 most cited papers in 2003-2006 years and for another paper in 2006-9 years. In 2014 he was awarded by the National Consortium –C.I.N.M.P.I.S. with the “Innovation in research” prize. In 2019 he was awarded with the “Piero Pino” Medal by the Italian Chemical Society. He is author of more than 220 publications on international journals, including four patents, 15 review articles and 11 book chapters (h index 49). He has been editor of the book Recoverable and recyclable catalysts (Wiley 2009), of the book “Catalyst Immobilization: Methods and Applications” (Wiley, 2020), and of the book “Organocatalysis -Stereoselective Reactions and Applications in Organic Synthesis” (DeGruyter, 2021) and he is member of the editorial board of Molecules. He has been the Director of International Summer School on Organic Synthesis - ISOS “A. Corbella” (2014-20117) and he is co-founder and Director of the International School of Process Chemistry- ISPROCHEM (2017-present). He is the coordinator of the EU-funded MSCA ITN-EID project “TECHNOTRAIN”. His research activities include: development of novel synthetic methodologies, stereoselective reactions in water and other alternative, sustainable reaction solvents (such as DES, deep eutectic solvents), design of new chiral catalysts, recyclable organic catalysts, to be used also in flow chemistry processes (catalytic reactors) and in micro(meso)reactors, 3D-printing technologies, synthesis of chiral products of pharmaceutical interest, organophotocatalytic reactions and studies on stereoselective electrochemical organic reactions.

The use of enabling technologies and continuous-flow systems are becoming more and more important in the synthesis of chiral APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). The combination of organocatalysis and photochemistry can give access in one-step to molecules, which would otherwise be difficult to attain. Examples of asymmetric organocatalyzed photochemical reactions translated into continuous flow are rare. An efficient continuous flow photoredox reactor, that was incorporated as one unit of operation into the first fully telescoped, continuous asymmetric catalytic synthesis of a privileged API will be presented. A visible light catalyzed cyclization of bis(enones) to afford enantiomerically enriched cyclopentane rings, the use of packed-bed reactors in light-driven reactions and a continuous flow approach to access alpha-trifluoromethylthiolated esters and amides starting from commercially available arylacetic acids will be also described, as well as in-flow on water ultrafast organic transformations.
