Overview on Research

My research is focused on 3 topics: microgel catalysts; microgels for plant protection; polymers functionalization. Regarding microgel catalysts, the focal point of my research is on their application in heterophase reactions and one-pot cascade reactions. The synthesis of pectin-based microgels with stimuli-responsive function aims at the triggered release of insecticides and pesticides for the protection of plants. My work in the field of polymer functionalization is dedicated to the modification of CO2-based polyols with functional end groups.
