The group can rely on a wide range of instruments to analize and perform reactions and computational tools for processing data, as well as on all the istrumentation
available at the "Laboratorio analisi" at the Department of Chemistry. Learn more ...

Enabling TECHNOlogies-driven chemistry: a tailored TRAINing research program for batch and flow synthesis of chiral amino derivatives
Technotrain is a new project coordinated by Prof. Maurizio Benaglia and supported by European Union as a part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie innovative training network (ITN).
Aim of Technotrain is the training of a group of young European chemists, through a doctorate program, that can merge the needs of modern industrial applications with an accurate academic expertise.
In the context of Technotrain, the Benaglia group, in collaboration with a German "high tech" company and with three other European research centers, will develop innovative and sustainable methods
for the synthesis of chiral amino acids (in particular non-natural) and of other active ingredients of pharmaceutical interest applicable to industrial scale.
The combination of enabling technologies with low environmental impact, such as the use of a 3D printing approach for the realization of new devices, and other modern strategies such as photocatalysis,
continuous flow processes, metal-free catalysis, represents a fundamental step towards the development of a more efficient green chemistry.
