Mario Pagliaro is a chemistry and energy
scholar based at Italy's CNR where he leads a research
whose work is developed in co-operation with leading
researchers based in 20 countries, including Israel, China, France, UK,
Canada, and the US.
Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, his research interests are in
the broad areas of nanochemistry, solar energy and the bioeconomy. He has
a prolonged interest also in sustainability and management topics.
In 2008 he introduced the term "Helionomics".
His achievements, which include several green chemistry technologies
nowadays used across the world, are reflected in over 150 frequently
research papers, 20 books, and several book chapters.
Dr Pagliaro has co-edited a number of important journal issues including
the 2015 "Pd Catalysis
thematic issue of ChemCatChem
(with Paolo Fornasiero), the 2014 "Hybrid
" issue of Nanoscal
(along with Jean-Marie Nedelec); and the 2011 "Heterogeneous
for Fine Chemicals
" issue of
Catalysis Science & Technology
(with Graham Hutchings).
Chairman of the 10th FIGIPAS
Meeting in Inorganic Chemistry held in Palermo in 2009 («A
»), Dr Pagliaro regularly organizes conferences
and give courses, seminars and tutorials on the topics of his research.
He is a frequent invited speaker at international conferences and national
meetings. In 2012, he gave one keynnote lecture at the 22nd Canadian
Symposium on Catalysis. In 2010 he gave a keynote lecture at the 8th
Eurofedlipid Congress in Munich. In 2008 the University of Amsterdam
invited him to give the "John van Geuns" Lecture. In 2012 he was invited
by Professor Aldo Steinfeld to give a seminar on solar hydrogen at
In 2005 he was appointed "Maître de conférences associé" at the Ecole
Nationale Superieure de Chimie in Montpellier.
Member of the advisory board of Chemical
Science & Engineering
, Dr Pagliaro sits on the editorial board of
ChemistrySelect, Chemistry Central
Sustainable Chemical Processes
and Letters in Organic Chemistry
As scientific expert he evaluates proposals
for numerous research funding agencies, including the French
Research Agency (France), the Royal Society, the Pazi Foundation (Israel),
the US-Israel Binational Science Foundation and the Estonian Research
Since 2011 he presides over the organization of the SuNEC
"Sun New Energy Conference" and the FineCat
"Symposium on heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemistry" - a series of
premier scientific meetings held annually in Sicily.
Since 2004 his team organizes the prestigious Seminar
whose 2011 edition was hosted by Italy’s Parliament.
