Maurizio Benaglia's Biography



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

Maurizio Benaglia, since 2015 Full Professor of Organic Chemistry, at the Università degli Studi di Milano, is author of more than 230 publications on scientific international journals. His main research interests are the development of novel synthetic methodologies and their application to the synthesis of chiral pharmaceutical products, the design of new chiral organocatalysts, the study of visible light-driven reactions and organic electrosynthesis, to develop innovative and sustainable chemical processes, exploring the use of novel packed-bed and monolithic catalytic reactors, exploiting the unique features of such devices in stereoselective transformations in flow processes and studying organocatalyzed reactions in mini- and microreactors under continuous-flow conditions, taking advantage also of 3D-printing technologies. He was awarded by the Italian Chemical Society of the Ciamician medal (2001), and the Piero Pino Medal, he has been the director of the International School “Corbella” (2013-2017) and since 2017 he is the Director of the International School of Process Chemistry (ISPROCHEM). He is also Editor 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 Coordinator of national and international financed projects.

In the last few years, the use of continuous-flow systems has been widely exploited in the synthesis of chiral APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients). Furthermore, the combination of organocatalysis and photochemistry may give a straightforward access to molecules which would otherwise be difficult to attain. Organocatalytic in flow reactions in (micro)-mesoreactors and in CSTRs (continuous stirred tank reactors) will be presented. A visible-light catalyzed cyclization of bis(enones) to afford enantiomerically enriched cyclopentane rings, a metallaphotoredox strategy for the synthesis of tryptamines and the use of packed-bed reactors in light-driven reactions will be discussed.
