Time: 12:30 - 1:30pm
Speaker: Professor Miquel Pericàs, ICIQ
Venue: Fogg Lecture Theatre, Fogg Building
In this Chemistry and Biochemistry seminar, Professor Miquel Pericàs, ICIQ will deliver a talk on ‘Immobilized Catalytic Systems for Asymmetric Flow Processes'.
The research of Professor Miquel Pericàs has been characterized by the use of a combined theoretical-experimental approach for the study of chemical problems in the fields of organic and organometallic chemistry. His major research interests are currently focused on: a) enantioselective catalysis with catalytic species immobilized on polymers and magnetic manoparticles, with the goal of developing flow processes for the continuous production of enantiomerically pure compounds, b) the development of complex catalytic systems with enzyme-like behavior, and c) the development of metallic complexes of tris(triazolyl)methanes for catalytic applications.
This seminar is open to all.
