Enol López

Enol López Hernández was born the 19th January of 1991 in Gijón (Asturias). He studied a Degree in Chemistry (2009-2013) at the University of Oviedo.

He complemented his academical formation obtaining a Master Degree in Synthesis and Chemical Reactivity (2013-2014) at the same University developing his Master Degree’s project titled “New catalytic methodologies for the synthesis of functionalized ferrocene derivatives” under the supervision of Prof. Luis A. López.

In 2014, he began his PhD in the Selective Organic Synthesis group (SOS) in the Department of Organic and Inorganic Chemistry at the same University, under the supervision of Prof. Luis A. López and Prof. A. Ballesteros. After obtaining a predoctoral grant under the Severo Ochoa Program, the aim of this PhD was the development of new coinage metal catalyzed transformations for the functionalization of metallocenes and cyclization reactions involving diazo compounds.

In 2017, he carried out a brief stay at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Prof. Steven V. Ley, developing new transformations in flow for the synthesis of a natural product. After finishing his PhD in 2018, he did a postdoctoral stay at the University of Gakushuin (Japan) under the supervision of Prof. T. Akiyama, where he was focused on the development of new catalytic transformations involving chiral phosphoric acids.

Enol López is author of more than 14 publications in peer-review journal articles and he obtained some recognitions during his career: Eli Lilly Award for PhD students (2017), Excellence Mobility grant founded by Santander Bank (2017), Finalist in the Suschem-JIQ Awards (2018) and San Alberto Magno Award for best PhD thesis (2019).

In 2019, he joined the Microwave and Sustainable Organic Chemistry group (UMSOC), developing a project in collaboration with the pharmaceutical company Janssen. He is focused on the development of new electrochemical transformations in flow and new catalytic methodologies with direct application in medicinal chemistry programs.

Ivan Torres

  

Iván Torres Moya was born the 19th October of 1990 in Ciudad Real.

He studied a Degree in Chemical Sciences (2008-2013) at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) with a final score of 9.0, receiving a Collaboration scolarship in his last academic course, beginning to form part of the group.

He complemented his academic background studying a Master Degree in Investigation in Chemistry (2013-2014) with a final score of 9.5. Meanwhile, he received a very competitive FPU scolarship to begin his PhD in the Department of Inorganic, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the UCLM under the supervision of Dra. Pilar Prieto Núñez Polo and Dr. José Ramon Carrillo Muñoz (UCLM).

He obtained the International PhD in Chemical Sciences on 12th February in 2019. During his PhD he acquired a lot of skills in Organic Chemistry, amongst them reactions under microwave irradiation, theoretical calculations, characterization of compounds employing different techniques and their application in different fields such as organic electronics, polymers, gels or biomedicine. He has attended more than twenty congresses related to his work and has written some scientific publications.

Furthermore, he has done some pre-doctoral stays. One of them in the group of Dr. Juan Teodomiro López Navarrete at the University of Málaga, one of the most relevant groups in the area of organic electronics in Spain, whose work is focused on the design and characterization of organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), and another one was in the group of Dr. Jonathan W. Steed in the University of Durham (United Kingdom), in which he worked with organogels and the crystallization of drugs.

Margarita Ruiz

Margarita Ruiz de Castañeda Álvaro was born the 18th January of 1990 in Ciudad Real.

She studied a Degree in Chemistry (2008-2013) at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) and obtained the award for academic achievement by Faculty of Science and Technologies of the University. She received a Collaboration scholarship during the course 2012-2013 to carry out a research work on catalytic processes with coordination compounds in the Chemistry laboratory of the Applied Coordination group of UCLM. She complemented her academic background studying a Master Degree in the same group (2013-2014). Then, she obtained her International PhD from the same University in Chemical Sciences in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Félix Ángel Jalón Sotés of the UCLM and Prof. Gustavo Adolfo Espino Ordoñez of the University of Burgos (UBU). During her PhD she worked in the preparation and application of transition metal complexes for the homogeneous hydrogenation and isotopic labelling of organic substrates. Moreover, she completed a predoctoral stay in 2017 at the University of Liverpool (UoL) under the supervision of Prof. Jianliang Xiao. After finishing her PhD, she joined the Microwave and Sustainable Organic Chemistry group (UMSOC) in March of 2019, where she is currently hired in the framework of a national project focused on the application of NMR microcoils for the hyperpolarization of heteroamiloids, an strategy for drug development. The project combines the advantages of photo-Chemically Induced Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (photo-CIDNP) and microcoils, representing an efficient and cheap alternative to enhance the sensitivity of NMR for mass-limited samples.
