Asymmetric Synthesis and Functional Nanosystems Group

The research carried out in the AS@FUN group can be divided into three main axes: (i) Asymmetric Synthesis using Chiral Sulfur Derivatives, (ii) Asymmetric Catalysis using Carbohydrate ligands, (ii) Synthesis of Functional Nanosystems based on Carbon Nanotubes. All these subjects have in common the utilization of carbohydrates either as inexpensive chiral codifying agents or as molecular recognition elements of biological receptors implied in unsolved pathological processes.
