Raffaella De Luca
She obtained her master degree in “Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies” in April 2021 at the University of Pisa. During her degree she worked on the synthesis and characterization of a set of novel small molecules potentially active as inhibitors of Carbonic Anhydrase.
In November 2021 she won a PhD Scholarship in “Science of Drugs and Bioactive Substances” at University of Pisa, financed by PON, a national program which aims to develop new green methods for a more sustainable industry.
The purposes of her project are the use of Natural Deep Eutectic Solvents (NADES) and Biocompatible Ionic Liquids (Bio-ILs) for a full valorization of biomass, and also the evaluation of human toxicity and the enviromental impact of these two classes of solvents.
