Teaching:

General and Inorganic Chemistry for the degree of Geological Sciences

Metallorganic Chemistry for the Masters of Industrial Chemistry and Chemistry

The research activity deals with the preparation of porous materials deriving from the combination of metal ions and polytopic organic linkers able to reversibly adsorb molecular species of environmental interest (CO2) or agrochemical/nutraceutocal interest (natural essentialo oils).

A second topic of my reseacrh deals with the valorization of lignin in agrochemical and zootechnical applications 

Prof. paolo Pelagatti was born in Parma, 30-09-1968. In 1993 he got a Master degree in Chemistry (University of Parma, then in 1998 a Research Doctorate (PhD) in Chemical Science (UNiversity of Parma). In 1998 he became Post-Doc at Istituto Nazionale per la Fisica della Materia (I.N.F.M., Research Unit of Unversity of Parma). In 1999 he became University Researcher (University of Parma, General and Inorganic Chemistry) and Associate Professor in the same University in 2014.

 

Prof. Pelagatti has published about 90 papers on international peer reviewed journals and attended several national and international congresses, and filed patents.

 

His research activity is mainly devoted to:

 

1) Organometallic Crsytal Engineering: synthesis and structural characterization of roganometallic compounds of transition metals able to reversibly adsorb volatile organic compounds through heterogeneous solid-gas reactions

2) Synthesis and structural characterization of Metal-Organic-Frameworks (MOF) for the ncapsulation and controlled release of active substances, mainly antobacterial agents

3) Use of lignin for the preparation of environmentally sustainable pesticides

 

The resarch is conducted in collaboration with Italian (University of Milan, University of Turin and University Milano-Bicocca) and foreign (Cape Town University) universities, as well as Italian and foreigh companies.

Lines of research

Preparation of porous material deriving from the combination of metal ions and polytopic organic linkers for the selective and reversible uptake of gases and organic liquids. Particular emphasis is given to the uptake of environmental important gases, such as carbon dioxide, and natural essential oils, such as phenol derivatives (eugenol, carvacrol, thymol etc.). A second research line deals with the functionalization of lignin with metal species for agrochemical and zootechnical applications.
