Dr Marco Scoponi gained his PhD in chemical sciences in 1987. He is currently senior researcher at the Institute of Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity (ISOF) at the Dep.t of Chemistry of University of Ferrara. He belongs to the scientific group of Science and Technology of Materials of Research National Council (RNC) of Italy. Since 1999 he has teached polymer chemistry (chemistry degree course) and since 2006 polymer science and technology (Mechanical Engineering degree) at University of Ferrara. He has been scientific responsible of several national projects and a scientific leader of the Department of Molecular Design of RNC of Italy. In 2007 he has created the company Advanced Polymer Materials Ltd (APM) in collaboration with the University of Ferrara. The APM activity is devoted to technology transfer by using thermoplastic, thermoset and UV-curable polymers. The current scientific activity is on polymer synthesis and characterization, polymer viscoelasticity and rheology, UV curing reactions and polymer processing. In the last four years, the most scientific acvitity has been dedicated to the synthesis and characterization of biobased monomers and polymers (i.e. bioplastics) for replacing conventional fossil-derived polymers.
