Curriculum Daniele Zuccaccia

Daniele Zuccaccia obtained his "laurea" cum laude in Chemistry from University of Perugia in 2001. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Chemical Sciences from the University of Perugia in the December 2004 under the supervision of Prof. Alceo Macchioni and Prof. Gianfranco Bellachioma. The title of the thesis work is "NMR elucidation of the interplay between weak intermolecular interactions and solution structures in arene ruthenium complexes". From 2005 to 2010 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Chemistry, University of Perugia. Since June 2015 he is professor at the University of Udine. The current research activities concerns the synthesis, characterization and application in homogeneous catalysis of metallorganic compounds with particular attention to the role of non-covalent interactions on the structure and reactivity of the compounds. These weak interactions deeply influence the structure and reactivity of metallorganic compounds in the catalytic and stoichiometric reactions. Their study is performed in solution through nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques. In particular, the complementarity between the structural information derived from experiments 1D-NOE and 2D-NMR, homo and hetero-nuclear, and about the volume of non-covalent aggregates in solution derived from experiments PGSE (Pulsed-Field Gradient Spin-Echo) NMR is valuable. During 2008, the research has focused on the synthesis, intramolecular and interionic characterization and application in catalysis of linear compounds of Au(I) (Zuccaccia, D., et al. J . Am. Chem. Soc 2009, 131, 3170). This research has been highlighted in Nature Chemistry (Davey, S. Nature Chemistry, doi: 10.1038/nchem.164) and since January 2012 has been funded by the MIUR under the research FIRB-futuro in ricerca: project AuCat (RBFR1022UQ) "New molecular catalysts of Au (I): from know-how to the know-why."
