Julio Cezar Pastre's Biography

Julio Cezar Pastre, Associate Professor, University of Campinas – UNICAMP

Prof. Dr. Julio C. Pastre obtained his PhD in 2009 at the University of Campinas – UNICAMP. He then worked as a research scientist at Rhodia-Solvay before moving back to UNICAMP for postdoctoral studies with Professor Ronaldo A. Pilli. In 2012, he joined the group of Professor Steven V. Ley at the University of Cambridge. Two years later, Julio established his independent research group at UNICAMP and recently became Associate Professor. He is now the Head of the Department of Organic Chemistry. Recently, he was recognized as an ‘Emerging Investigator’ by Reaction Chemistry & Engineering and RSC Advances and a ‘New Talent from the Americas’ by RSC Medicinal Chemistry. His research interest focuses on the development of new synthetic methods using enabling technologies for the synthesis of high added-value compounds from renewable sources, including platform molecules, new chemicals, and APIs.

Raw materials from renewable sources, as well as agro-industrial waste, represent an attractive source of useful chemical functionalities. Our research group has already identified continuous flow processing as a fundamental technology for the valorization of such materials. Flow chemistry offers unique opportunities for the conversion of biomass derivatives into chemical compounds with higher-added value, since it brings numerous advantages in terms of unique process experience, scalability, and reduced environmental footprint. In this context, we will present our efforts for the synthesis of platform molecules (such as furanics) and new chemicals (monomers, nitrogenated aromatics) from biomass derivatives.
