From 1987 to 1996 Prof. Rino Ragno worked in a wet lab doing chemical synthesis.
During those years the synthesis of new antifungal and antiviral compounds was realized.
Example of compounds synthesized are reported in:
- Synthesis of new disoxaril analogues with potent and selective anti-human rhinovirus 14 activity
- ANTIFUNGAL AGENTS, II Synthesis and Antifungal Activities of Aryl-1H-pyrrol-2-yl-1H-imidazol-1-yl-methane Derivatives with Unsaturated Chains
- Antifungal agents. 7. Dichlorophenylpyrrylimidazolylmethane derivatives: synthesis and antifungal activities
- Methyl-2-Thienylketopolymethyleneoxyphenyl Derivatives of Alkyl-Substituted 4,5-Dihydro-Oxazoles with Anti-Human Picornavirus Activity
For 9 years (2001-2010) Prof Rino Ragno taught medicinal chemistry synthesis at the Medicinal Chemistry and Technology master degree course
