Areas of Interest:
Marco Mazzotti has been full Professor of Process Engineering in the Institute of Process Engineering at the ETH Zurich since April 2001. From May 1997 to March 2001 he was Associate Professor at the same institute.
He was born in Milan on January 7, 1960 and studied chemical engineering at the Politecnico di Milano. Afterwards he worked in Milan for IBM Italia (1985-1988) and Montefluos (1988-1990).
He earned his PhD in 1993 with Prof. M. Morbidelli at the Politecnico di Milano and afterwards was there as a postdoc assistant. In 1994 he was appointed Assistant Professor of chemistry at the Politecnico di Milano.
His research interests focus on reacting systems and separation processes. In the first area he has been involved in projects about oscillating chemical systems, emulsion polymerization processes and enzymatic reactions in membrane reactors. In the second area the interests of Marco Mazzotti regard multicomponent distillation and in particular the analysis and the development of continuous chromatographic separation processes. These are based on the Simulated Moving Bed technology applied in both the liquid and the gas phase. These processes have been applied for decades in the hydrocarbon industry and are now gaining a key role in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industry for the fast and economical development of new products. Through the interaction of experimental investigation and theoretical analysis (using proper mathematical methods) Marco Mazzotti has contributed to the achievement of a deeper comprehension and a better control of these processes.
