Gianna Reginato is Senior Researcher at the Institute of Organometallic Compounds (CNR-ICCOM) Sesto Fiorentino (FI) – Italy.
Her interest is in synthetic organic chemistry, especially in the field of metal mediated processes (silicon and tin derivatives, cross-coupling reactions, catalysis). Her recent activity focus on the design and synthesis of new organic sensitizers for non-conventional photovoltaic cells production, and for application in photoactivated hydrogen production.
She was born in Florence, Italy, graduated in chemistry at the University of Florence in 1983 (supervisor Prof. Alfredo Ricci) and held a post-doctoral positions at Basel University, Switzerland (supervisor Prof. Bernd Giese). In 1989 she was appointed Researcher at CNR in Florence. She has supervised master and PhD students and is the author of over 120 Publications.
