I am a staff member of the group of Inorganic Materials and Catalysis at the ICMAB. My work mainly consists in the design, preparation and study of the properties of carborane cluster derivatives. These compounds can be used in dendrimeric structures, hybrid materials, or to functionalize surfaces.
The group works with different types of dendrimers, such as carbosilane, aryl-ether or polyphenylene. The introduction of boron compounds into the dendrimers allows us to obtain boron-rich compounds, which can be soluble in water when working with anionic carboranes. These compounds can be good candidates to be apply in biomedicine, specially in BNCT or antiviral. Some of dendrimers have luminescent properties such as fluorescence, making them very interesting for research. Another field of interest is the preparation of metallodendrimers based on metallacarboranes, which can be used in catalysis.
Different techniques are used for the characterization of compounds such as IR, multinuclear NMR (1H, 13C, 11B, 29Si), UV-vis, fluorescence, elemental analysis, mass spectrometry and in some cases, X-ray diffraction.
I am also interested have also in the preparation of carboranyl-containing organic-inorganic hybrid materials obtained by hydrolysis-polycondensation or Sol-Gel process. In this way, solid materials with a specific pore size and especially high thermal stability were obtained.
I am currently interested in working on the functionalization of surfaces, such as SiO2, TiO2, Si wafers, with metallacarborane and carborane derivatives, and the study of their properties and their potential applications in materials science and biomedicine.
To sum-up, my field of research can be framed within inorganic chemistry, more specifically within the chemistry of B and Si, in the preparation of new materials of interest in biomedicine and catalysis.
