Corrado Malanga received the diploma of surveyor in 1969 and graduated in chemistry in 1977 at the University of Pisa with an experimental thesis on the Chemistry of indol core. He worked for the Institute of Pharmaceutical Chemistry for one year after finishing his mandatory military service. In 1981 he moved to Paris at the University P. and M. Couriè, devoting himself to the synthesis of polymers on use of optically active propylene for about two years. In 1983 he won a competition as researcher at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Pisa.
Since 1983 he has focused his attention on heterocyclic of chemistry, new organic complexes of nickel in organic synthesis and new synthetic pathways to prepare natural compounds.
He has published about fifty papers on international scientific journals. In these years he held several positions teaching courses of organic chemistry I and II for the degree course in chemistry, organic chemistry, degree course in biological sciences, organometallic chemistry and organic chemistry lab II: degree courses in chemistry and industrial chemistry.
He has held lectures in the Organic chemistry International School A. Corbella organized by the Universities of Milan and Bologna. He was a speaker and co-speaker of countless thesis in chemistry and industrial chemistry.
