Last week of July and CICA celebrated a Hawaian party where the group was beautifully dressed. Luis got a price !!!

XXXIX Reunión Bienal de la RSEQ

This week we had the privilege to attend and contribute to the XXXIX biannual meeting of the Royal Chemical Society of Spain celebrated in Zaragoza ( Congratulations to the organizers and to Monse whose communication was awarded as the best poster. Well done !!

Review about indium organometallics

A new review by the group on indium organometallics in metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions appears published in the journal Advances in Organometallic Chemistry. Indium organometallics in transition metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions by Montserrat Martínez, José Pérez Sestelo and Luis A Sarandeses (

Beautiful cover for our recent OBC article !!!

Beautiful cover for our recent OBC article !!! Congratulations to everybody, specially to Monse who made the composition for the cover image. Great job !!!

New article published !!

Congratulations Fabio for the great work with the synthesis of isochromenes and isoquinolines under indium(III) catalysis. Happy to contribute to the special issue dedicated to Cristina Nevado. Well done !!

New paper comming !!

Congratulations Raquel for this novel synthesis of spiroketals using indium(III) catalysis.    

New article published !!!

Congratulations Ana for the nice publication in the journal Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry. BODIPY structures are now more accesible !!

New article published

A new article from the group published in the journal Dyes and Pigments in collaboration with Prof. David Esteban. Congratulations to everyone !!!

New publication

As a collaboration with Prof Maurizio Prato,  the work by Ana da Lama is now published in the special issue of the journal European  Journal odf Organic Chemistry dedicated to Cesare Gennari. Congratulations Ana and coworkers !!

The group at the RSEQ Meeting in Granada

This week the group presented three comunications at the XXXVIII biennial meeting of the RSEQ in Granada. Good job Ana, Fabio and Raquel !!!

Project funded

Happy to announce that our new project: Catalysis using Group 13 metal complexes and organometallic reagents (CatMetGroup13) has been proposed to be funded by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación. Congratulations to everyone !!!

PhD finished !!!

Yesterday was a great day in the group, Ramón presented his PhD Thesis !! Congratualtions for this excellent work !!

PhD defense

Next April 22, 2022 at 11:00 AM in the conference room of CICA Ramón Millán will presente his PhD work entitled: Determinación de la estereoquímica de telepamida y enigmazol C mediante cálculos computacionales, reacciones de cicloisomerización de 1,5-eninos catalizadas por indio(III), y síntesis total de ircinialactama J

New publication

The New Year brings a new publication as a consequence of a collaboration with Prof. Robert Maleczka at Michigan State University. In this article we probe the synthetic utility of indium organometallics in the synthesis of aryl boronic esters.

Congrats Ramón !!!

Ramón, congratulations for the excellent article just published in JOC. A really beautiful piece of work !!!

New undergraduate students !!!

Despite the lab space limitations due to COVID-19 three new enthusiastic undergraduate students, Aldara Asenjo Rodríguez (left), Rubén González Peteiro (center) and Juan Luis Méndez Alvarez (right) have joint the research group to prepare their final degree work.

Predoctoral fellowships Xunta de Galicia

Congratulations to Raquel and Ana for the predoctoral fellowship of the Xunta de Galicia earned. We are convinced that two excellent PhD Thesis will arise in due course.

Special Issue on Advances in Cross-Coupling Reactions

The journal Molecules publish an Special issue on Advances in Cross-Coupling Reactions. Guest Editors: José Pérez Sestelo and Luis A Sarandeses
