OUR RESEARCH

First-level organometallic chemistry topics

Our reseach focuses on the development of early-transition organometalic systems which are involved in the activation of small molecules. Particular enphasis is devoted to N2, although we have interest in other small molecules such as H2 or CO2 in order to synthesize high-value products. This research is of great value for our students, who do in-depth research and develop their expertise in synthesis, catalysis and spectroscopy during their internship in our group.
