Raquel Thesis Defense

Next Thursday 23, Raquel will denfese her Doctoral Thesis. We are willing to attend. Everybody welcome !!!

Alba winner in the program INCRUSTATE

Very happy (and proud) with the award that Alba got today with the poster presentation prepared for the scientific meeting INCRUSTATE. Alba, we were very happy to host you in the group and we hope that this experience will enhance your interest in Chemistry. Congratulations !!!

New article coming out !!!

A new publication from the PhD work of Ana has been recently published in JOC. In this attractive publication we demonstrate the utility of indium(III) catalysis in the synthesis of BODIPY derivatives. Congrats Ana, well done !!! For more details see: 10.1021/acs.joc.3c02951


This week we have received an student from secondary school participating in the program Incrústate that is showing scientific research to very young students. In our case we welcome Alba García Puga from IES Monelos. For more information about the program see: https://cica.udc.gal/landing/incrustate/  

Happy Hour

In the Happy Hour of CICA Fabio gave an espectacular talk about indium as catalyst in organic synthesis. The talk was recorded and is now available in youtube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=fabio+seoane+indio

New article for Christmas !!!

Happy to announce a new article accepted in Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis journal. The article describes part of the PhD work by Raquel and got the VIP label.  For details see: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/adsc.202301329
