Design of Organometallic Molecules and Applications

Salvador Conejero Iglesias

The group lead by Salvador Conejero and Amor Rodríguez has been stablished very recently (December 2016) with the name “Design of Organometallic Molecules and Applications”. The aim of this group is to develop organometallic catalysts and to study the mechanisms by which these molecules operate. Both Salvador Conejero and Amor Rodríguez have a very broad experience in organometallic chemistry and catalysis, an expertise that has been acquired over the years in renowned research centers in Spain, France and USA. This young group is consolidating his research, through publications in high-reputed journals and being funded by both local and national agencies. This experience includes also a solid experience in the formation of PhD students and other researchers at different stages of their career. Therefore, according to the CV and the profile of the solicitant, the accepting group offers a great opportunity to the applicant to develop her research in an emerging group able to tackle difficult challenges in different areas of research. In summary, the scientific record of the research group proves the high quality and international profile of the team, which represent an ideal situation for the applicant in order to develop her scientific career and reach a mature scientific level.
