Fabio Marchetti received his Degree in Industrial Chemistry from the University of Bologna in 1999 (summa cum laude), and the PhD in Chemistry from the same University in 2003, under the supervision of Prof. Luigi Busetto and Prof. Valerio Zanotti. He spent a post-doctoral stage (2003-2006) at the University of Bologna, working on the synthesis and functionalization of organometallic diiron complexes. He also spent training periods at Seabo-Hera in Bologna (1999) and at the Universities of Bristol (1999) and Zaragoza (Marie Curie grant, 2001-2002).
In 2006 he obtained a permanent researcher position at the University of Pisa, joining Prof. Fausto Calderazzo’s group and starting to collaborate with Prof. Guido Pampaloni. Since October 2018, he has been Full Professor in the same University. He spent periods as visiting scientist at the University of Helsinki (2006) and the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne (2012).
Fabio Marchetti has co-authored over 230 scientific publications (articles, communications and reviews) on peer-reviewed international journals, 2 book chapters and 2 international patents. His research interests regard the synthesis, the characterization and the properties of transition metal complexes, and the exploration of new reactivity patterns of small molecules.
He was invited to hold seminars in Italian and European Universities and he has been co-author of more than 100 contributions at national and international scientific conferences.
In 2014, he was awarded the “Raffaello Nasini” Prize from the Inorganic Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society, for his contribution to the progress in the chemistry of groups 5-6 metal compounds and in unusual metal directed C-C bond forming reactions.
Fabio Marchetti is presently lecturer at the University of Pisa of the following courses: Inorganic Chemistry I, Organometallic Chemistry, Bioinorganic Chemistry. He has supervised over 40 BSc, 37 MSc and 12 PhD theses in Chemistry or Industrial Chemistry. He has been reviewer of PhD theses in Chemistry from both Italian universities and abroad. He was vice-director of the Department of Chemisty and Industrial Chemistry (2018-2022) and is member of the Council for the PhD in Chemistry and Material Science.
