Andrea Penoni is Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry at the Department of Science and High Technology at the University of Insubria in Como, Italy since 2017. He graduated in Chemistry (1996, laurea degree) and received a PhD in Chemical Sciences (2000, doctoral research) at the University Statale of Milano under the supervision of Professor Sergio Cenini working on a project on amination reaction of olefins and hydrocarbons using transition metal complexes as catalysts. He did his postdoctoral training at the University Statale of Milano, and then joined the research group of Professor Kenneth M. Nicholas (2000–2001) at the University of Oklahoma, where he studied the annulation reactions between nitro- and nitrosoaromatics with alkynes. Since 2003, he has been Assistant Professor in Organic Chemistry at the University of Insubria and worked in the research group of Professor Giovanni Palmisano. His research is particularly focused on the synthesis of nitrogen-containing heterocycles, naturally occurring compounds and potentially bioactive molecules. Further, he is involved in research projects on the carbon–nitrogen bond formation mediated by metals and metal complexes and synthesis of biindole compounds as interesting moieties in material science.
Angelo Maspero is Associate Professor in Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of Science and High Technology at the University of Insubria in Como, Italy since 2017. His research interests involve Coordination and Organometallic Chemistry (working on the Synthesis, Reactivity and Spectroscopic characterization), Homogeneous Catalysis studying the Molecular dioxygen reactivity, the Oxidation and oxygenation of organic substrates, Carbon dioxide activation and functionalization, Catalytic formation of C-C, C-N and C-O bonds. He worked even on Organic synthesis assisted by metal centers: Polymerization and olygomerization of alkynes, Cyclopropanation of alkenes. His recent research works in Inorganic Materials (Synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of coordination polymers, Photoluminescent properties of coordination compounds). In the last decade he particularly focused his attention on the preparation, characterization and study of the properties of Metal-Organic Frameworks).
Luca Scapinello got his Chemistry BS and MSc in 2017 under the supervision of prof. A. Penoni at the Department of Science and High Technology in University of Insubria and he is currently working as PhD student in the same group. His research topics focus on novel strategies for indole ring synthesis and, in cooperation with prof. T. Benincori, on synthesis of inherently chiral biindoles for applications in materials science. He spent 10 months as visiting PhD student at University of Stuttgart (Germany) in the Polymer Chemistry group headed by prof. S. Ludwigs.
