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. He has worked and studied in Italy, the Netherlands,
Israel, France, Germany and Quebec (Canada).
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" in his book Flexible
. Between September and December 2015 he was president
of Palermo's public energy utility Amg Energia.
His achievements, which include several green chemistry technologies
nowadays used across the world, include over 160 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).
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. Chairman of the 10th
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 is a member of the editorial
board of ChemistrySelect, Chemistry

As scientific expert he evaluates proposals
for numerous research funding agencies, including the: French
Research Agency, Royal Society, Pazi Foundation (Israel), US-Israel
Binational Science Foundation, Estonian Research Council, Poland National
Science Centre, and ACS Petroleum Research Fund.
Since 2004 his team organizes the prestigious Seminar
whose 2011 edition was hosted by Italy’s Parliament.
