Our research interest is focused on Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis, including the synthesis, reactivity, characterization and applications of this type of compounds. Amongst our goals is the development of more efficient and sustainable processes of interest in Organic Synthesis, and also the development of products useful in technical applications, as for instance those that may be relevant to the generation and chemical-storage of hydrogen.

In particular we focus on the design of late transition metals compounds with polydentate stabilizing ligands to be used in C-H activation, C-C coupling and   (de)hydrogenation reactions, as well as other unusual chemical transformations. Additionally, our interests include the immobilization of catalysts on silica gel-type surfaces, to evaluate the activity and recyclability under heterogeneous conditions as well as the preparation of metal nanoparticles stabilized by different ligands.
