Giancarlo Masci was born in Rome (Italy) on january 29, 1965. He took the italian "Laurea" cum laude in Chemistry at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy,
in 1989. PhD in Chemistry Sciences at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy in 1993, Since 1997 he has been working at the University of Rome "La
Sapienza", Chemistry Department, as Researcher . In 2012 he passed the Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale (Italy) as Associate Professor.
The research activity of Prof. Masci was mainly in the field of Controlled radical polymerization, mainly Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) for the
synthesis of complex architecture block and graft copolymers with controlled molecular weight and low polydispersity to be used for self-assembling of pH or
thermosensitive nanoparticles. He also has been working in the field of polysaccharides chemical modification for the preparation of nanoparticles and hydrogels.
Since 2013 he has been studying also the preparation of conjugated polymers between oligo-peptides with a regularly alternated stereoregular structure and
biocompatible polymers both synthetic and natural (polysaccharides). Since 2014 he has been working in a project concerning new biocompatible ionic liquids based
on cholinium-amino acid room temperature ionic liquids ([Ch][AA] RTILs). In this work his group developed a new preparation method for these ILs which results
significantly more rapid and green than the other methods reported in the literature.
He is a member of the Italian Macromolecular Association (AIM). He is Member of Chemical Science Doctorate School of Rome Sapienza University. Since 1997 he
was financed as participant with several national and local Grants. The last two years he was financed as participant by the Awards Grant (about 60.000 €) of Sapienza
university of Rome.
He published about 50 papers on international peer reviewed Journals. H INDEX = 22. About 1100 citations.
