Research Interests

​Photochemistry is gaining more importance in the field of "Green Chemistry", the light acts as a clean reagent since it activate the substrates and leaves no residues in the reaction mixtures. Thus, photochemistry appears as a valid alternative in the frame of sustainable development and it allows new bond constructions that are currently impossible via classical two-electron pathways.
