Research Lines

The overall aim of our research program is the development of novel chemical reactivity that opens new opportunities to generate molecular complexity with exquisite control of chemo-, regio-, diastereo- and enantioselectivity features. Specifically, our research, committed to chemical sustainability, is currently focused on two areas:

  1. Transition Metal-Catalyzed Asymmetric Construction of Heterocyclic Compounds

2. Metal-catalyzed C–H functionalization processes


  1. Sustainable Catalysis for Molecular Complexity Generation: From an Anionic to a Radical Approach.
