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.

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.
