LABORATORYMSCA-MIOMeT (Inorganic and Organometallic Molecules) Group
MIOMeT (Inorganic and Organometallic Molecules) Group (http://miomet.blogs.uva.es/) is a part of the CINQUIMA Institute. The general aim of the group is study of the synthesis, reactivity and the physical properties of coordination and organometallic compounds of main group metals and transition metals. The research is particularly oriented towards compounds of biological or nanotechnological interest. Some concrete targets are:
- Applications in functionalization of biomolecules (bioconjugation): peptides, proteins, nucleobases, etc.
- Development of new nanosized species for anchoring metallic fragments. Applications in carbon nanoallotropes for nanotechnology.
- Use of organometallic complexes in the preparation of nanoparticles with useful properties.
We are a synthetic inorganic group with expertise in synthetic methods and characterization techniques, including X-ray crystallography, multinuclear NMR, and chromatographic methods. The study of the properties of our systems is carried out not only experimentally but also by using computational simulation.
- DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER
The work to be carried out by the candidate will be focused on the preparation, characterization and study of properties of corannulene-based molecular entities capable of forming supramolecular adducts with carbon nanoallotropes in order to further explore the possibility to use the best composite as photoactive material in organic photovoltaic devices. Furthermore, the candidate will guide inexperienced graduate and undergraduate students working in the same research line and have the chance to attend all our scholar activities, including decision-making meetings, because we are always open to new ideas that could improve our scientific output and collaborative networks, both private and academic.
The candidate will conduct their main activity at Laboratories C001 and C005 in the Science Building at Campus Miguel Delibes, which are well equipped for the project. They will be assigned an individual fume hood, an office and will have access to a large array of resources and facilities available on the campus, including MS, IR, UV ICP, HPLC, microscopic and NMR facilities and workstations for theoretical calculations.
