The group of Dr. Pérez-Temprano is focused on the development of new synthetic catalytic methods with cobalt through detailed knowledge of the catalytic process. To develop their research projects, they apply different approaches, from synthetic organic chemistry to mechanical studies, including the capture of highly reactive reaction intermediates.
