Personal profile

Research interests

Patrizio Raffa is Associate Professor in Smart and Sustainable Polymeric Products. His current research aims at developing new multifunctional polymeric materials relevant for industrial applications. In particular, he is interested in amphiphilic and stimuli-responsive polymers obtained via controlled polymerization methods, and in the use of bio-derived building blocks for the synthesis of sustainable polymeric products. These can be used in various applications as rheology modifiers, emulsifiers, dispersants, binders for coatings, controlled release systems, and smart/multifunctional materials.
