Summary

The main objective of Dr. Suero is to catalytically generate reactive carbon species not yet explored and study their behavior on organic compounds. His goal is to discover new rules of reactivity of carbon, not only for the design and discovery of new chemical reactions, but also for its use to build molecular complexity. The group has been a pioneer in the catalytic generation of diazomethyl radicals as direct equivalents of monovalent carbine species. This discovery allows the design of innovative disconnection strategies for the construction of chiral centers in drugs, agrochemicals and materials. In addition, the group is interested in the use of highthroughput techniques for the synthesis of libraries of bioactive molecules that cannot be obtained by conventional routes, precision medicine with PET imaging and in the development of new chemical reactions with application in chemical biology.
