1. Química Bio-Organometálica

Bio-Organometallic Chemistry

We are interested in the design of structures that incorporate transition metals to obtain new entities with relevant biological properties. In some cases we use natural products as scaffolds to prepare more complex structures to test properties and reactivity. In our approach, complex and structurally diverse molecular entities may be accessed, with imagination as the sole frontier.

2. Desarrollo de nuevos sistemas Bio-Organometálicos para la producción de H2

Development of new Bio-Organometallic systems for the production of H2

Construction of models of dihydrogenases based on metala-oligonucletides and the study of their ability for H2 production.

 

3. Desarrollo de Nuevos complejos de metales de transición para el estudiar la conductividad en ADN/ARN. Aplicaciones al daño dirigido en nucleótidos

New metal complexes for the study of conductivity in DNA/RNA. Application to the directed damage in nucleotides.

We are interested in the development of flexible methodologies for the preparation of metala-oligonucleotides and the modulation of their optical and electrochemical properties. The use of catalytic/stoichiometric M-C functionalization reactions are the key for the incorporation of fluorescent or electrochemical markers.

4. Síntesis de sistemas mono- y polimetálicos con propiedades específicas

Synthesis of mono- and polymetallic systems with specific properties

A part of our research is devoted to the synthesis and the study of the modulation of properties (i.e. luminescence, electrochemistry,…) in mono- and polymetallic compounds.

 

 

5. Desarrollo de Nuevos Agentes Quelantes y Estudio de los Mecanismos de Transferencia de Hierro a plantas

Development of new Chelating Agents and Study of the Mechanisms of Transfer of iron to Plants

We have developed methodology to synthesize different types of chelating agents that can be used as efficient iron chlorosis correctors. Additionally, we are studying the mechanism of transfer of iron to plants, a process in which the enzyme Fe-chelate redutase is playing a key role.
