Areas of Research/Expertise

 Research activity in the domain of green organic synthesis and processing, these studies have paved the way for new, non-conventional energy source driven synthetic procedures (microwaves, ultrasound, hydrodynamic cavitation, mechanochemistry, flow chemistry, etc.), while also prompting the development of innovative hybrid reactors. Starting from lab scale procedures, scaling up studies enabled the set up of several  pilot scale processes toward industrial applications.
