Giancarlo Cravotto's Biography

Giancarlo Cravotto, Professor, University of Torino

Giancarlo Cravotto became a researcher at the Department of Drug Science and Technology (University of Turin), after four years of experience in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and one year at the Techniche Universität in Berlin. Former Director of the Department of Drug Science and Technology, he is currently Full Professor of Organic Chemistry and vice-Director. His research activity in the domain of green organic synthesis and processing, is documented by more than 500 scientific, peer-reviewed papers (H. Index 63, 16,800 citations by Scopus; H. Index 72, 21,500 citations by Google Scholar), 21 patents, 42 book chapters and 7 books as editor. The extraction, purification, synthesis and chemical modification of bioactive natural products has been the focus of his research activity. These studies have paved the way for new, non-conventional energy source driven synthetic procedures (microwaves, ultrasound, hydrodynamic cavitation, plasma, mechanochemistry, flow chemistry, etc.), while also prompting the reactors scaling up and the development of innovative hybrid units. He is Editor-in-Chief of Processes (MDPI, Basel); Associate Editor of Frontiers in Chemical Engineering and Editor or Editorial board member of several other journals. Recent awards: Scientific Research Award 2018 "Organic Chemistry for the Environment, Energy and Nanosciences" and the Gold Medal “E. Paternò” 2017-2020 by the Italian Chemical Society.

In the last three decades, organic chemists have paid much more attention to reaction kinetics and have tested various non-conventional techniques to improve the reaction outcome. The transition from batch to continuous-flow synthetic processes is one of the most important advances in the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical industries. The high complexity and functionalization of APIs usually requires many synthetic steps with workup and purification, which affects the overall yield. This communication summarizes the key technologies and energy sources to promote continuous flow chemical reactions, improving mixing, dissolution and heating, simplifying workup and downstream steps such as sonocrystallization. Excellent heat transfer is observed with dielectric and ohmic heating, while efficient mass transfer occurs with ultrasound and hydrodynamic cavitation. Ad hoc tailored reactors are required depending on the necessary energy and residence time.
