Agilio Padua is a prof. of Physical Chemistry at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and co-leads the Ionic Liquids Group with Margarida Costa Gomes (CNRS res. prof.). The IL Group is part of the Theoretical Chemistry and Molecular Thermodynamics research axis at the Chemistry Laboratory .
The group studies the physical chemistry of ionic liquids and eutectic mixtures, aiming to develop new solvents for reactions or separations, and also electrolytes or lubricants, with applications in sustainable chemical processes and devices. The group’s work combines molecular dynamics simulations with experimental thermodynamics. More details about the research, the people and computer codes can be found in the Ionic Liquids Group pages.
Agilio Padua authored 170 publications that were cited over 12 500 times in the literature (h-index 55), is an honorary (senior) member of the Institut Universitaire de France and seats at the Conseil National des Universités (Physical Chemistry).
