Academia Europaea ordinary member Mario Pagliaro now evaluating
proposals for visiting professorship
- Top University seeking top visiting
Professor in chemistry, renewable
energy and bioeconomy may wish to contact Academia Europaea's ordinary
member Mario Pagliaro.
Elected ordinary member of Academia Europaea in the chemical sciences class, Dr Pagliaro is also Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry having been designated Fellow in 2014 in recognition of his "significant contributions to the chemical sciences". He ranks in the top 2% World Ranking list of Scientists in all fields of science drawn up by Stanford University scholars, and is amid Italy's most cited scientists in nanotechnology and materials chemistry.
Developed in co-operation with leading
researchers based in 20
countries, his Group's research is reported in over 300 frequently
papers, 26 of
which feature on the cover of journals such as ChemSusChem, Nanoscale,
& Technology and
Frequently cited for his excellence in teaching and writing, Dr Pagliaro has authored 22 books.
He is a member of the Advisory Board of Chemical Society Reviews (world's #1 chemistry journal in Google Scholar rank) and of several internationally recognized scientific journals.
Research in nanochemistry focuses on sol-gel
and metal-organic alloys (MORALs)
for green chemistry
applications. Joint achievements
include new SiliaSun, TitaniaSun, SiliaCat TEMPO
catalysts for synthetic organic
chemistry and enhanced polysaccharide
nanofibers production; new AquaSun
antifouling coating; and new
bionanomaterials such as Omeg@Silica based
on new bioproducts obtained using jointly
developed novel extraction methods.
Development of new, green bioproduct
extraction methods and development of new green technology
for old biobased processes. Joint achievements
include the introduction of several new bioproducts including new AnchoisOil fish oil,
new IntegroPectin citrus
pectin, new CytroCell
micronized citrus cellulose, new beer
making process, and new olive
extraction process at three phase olive mills.

and energy education research widely
used across the world to improve
education in chemistry, nanochemistry
How to advance
nanochemistry education was proposed by Dr Pagliaro in a
seminal study appeared in Chem.
Eur. J. wherein, among
three distinctive features, he suggested an approach to
innovating in environmentally responsible ways.
“I read with great interest your recent paper entitled Advancing Nanochemistry Education” wrote him Professor João Rodrigues, Director of the Master in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials at the University of Madeira. “I would like to inform you that most of the strategies and textbooks cited in your paper, are also currently under use, with great success, in our Master in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials”.
The studies in energy management and solar energy education, for example, fulfill a global need for better energy education in the context of the energy transition.
Driven by the need for a better and quicker adoption of renewable
energy and energy efficiency across the world, his team
published in Energy
Res. Soc. Sci. a seminal
describing the contents and the educational approach of a new course
green”) aimed to shape
At about the same time, the group published in Renew. Sust. Energy Rev. another study focusing on how to effectively rethink solar energy education on the dawn of the solar economy
Combining different approaches, the resulting multidisciplinary "Solar Master" graduate course is targeted at science, engineering, economics and management students with the aim to shape professionals capable to understand, develop and disseminate solar energy seen as a strategic and critical resource for each world’s country.
By the end of 2017, Pagliaro and Meneguzzo published in Chem. Eur. J. a research policy study describing the need, role and the activities of a new bioeconomy and solar energy research and educational centre whose outcomes are of general interest, because the transition to a solar economy is of intrinsic global nature and the challenges involved are similar in many countries.
Our studies in the field today are widely
read worldwide to teach and
open science tools. Research started in 2017 with a study on preprints
in chemistry. We have explained why chemistry is the
basic science with the lowest
of open science (preprints, green self-archiving, OA papers).
Yet, the benefits of open science are too many for the chemistry community to continue in this delay. Key to increase open science uptake is PhD student education in open science. Hence, we are publishing a number of new studies to inform said new education, spanning from publishing scientific articles in the open science era to preprint citations.

the use of
the h-index in
evaluating chemical research in
Chem. Cent. J. is amongst
the most accessed articles on the SpringerNature website. Our study on
expanded evaluation of
scholarship in the open science age is currently used by
academic and research institutions across the world to renew evaluation
