Claudia Antonetti graduated “cum laude” in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Pisa (UNIPI) in 2006 and received her Perfezionamento (equivalent to PhD) “cum laude” in Chemical Sciences at Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa) in 2010. During the PhD course of studies, she spent 6 months at the Chemistry Department of the University of Cambridge (UK) in the research group of Prof. Richard Lambert, investigating the synthesis of innovative catalysts. In 2015, she has taken the certificate of Post-graduate Course (Master) in Bioenergy and Environment at the University of Florence together with C.R.E.A.R. (Research Center for alternative and renewable energies), focusing on the development of new and green technologies for biomass conversion, especially in the perspective of the circular economy approach. Her research activities mainly concern the applied catalysis and the biomass exploitation. In particular, she has dealt with the synthesis, the characterization and the applications of nanostructured catalysts based on Ru, Pd, Au, Cu and Ag, developing an in-depth knowledge and expertise regarding their preparation under sustainable reaction conditions. The obtained systems were tested in many reactions, with special attention to the hydrogenation ones. At the same time, she has studied the integrated and catalytic conversion of several types of biomasses, including waste ones, for the recovery of sugars and platform-chemicals of relevant industrial interest, such as 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, furfural and levulinic acid, for their further exploitation to biofuels, energy, chemical products and advanced plastic materials, through sustainable processes with low environmental impact, autocatalytic and/or catalytic ones, employing traditional and/or microwave/ultrasonic heating.
