RESEARCH ACTIVITY

Sustainable synthesis using heterogeneous catalysis applied to both pharma products and commodities. A great deal of attention is devoted to substitution of toxic and mutagenic noble metals in hydrogenation and other metal catalyzed reaction in the synthesis of pharma products to comply with EMEA restrictions. Strong expertise in the esterification and trans-esterification rection in the presence of solid acids (2 International patents). Valorization of natural extracts for the production of nutraceutical, pharma and cosmetic products as well as antibacterial materials.
