Dendrimers & Molecular Polygons Group
Our research in this field is related to the study of the potencial catalitic activity of metallodendrons containing P-stereogenic phosphane dendrons in supercritic CO2 or water soluble metallodendrons.
The synthesis of carbosilane-skeleton metallodendrons functionalized with tertiary phosphanes and a thiol group as focal point are developed for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles. The corresponding potential catalytic activity is also studied.
The research developed in this area is based on self-assembly reactions to obtain supramolecular structures. To do this, the previous synthesis of the appropriate ligands for the construction of the metallomacrocycles is also carried out.
