Emilio Palomares

Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia. Tarragona, Spain

Emilio Palomares, from the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ), in Tarragona, Spain, is interested in the development of light driven molecular devices where the limited functionalities of individual molecules are enhanced by their organisation into larger and heterogeneous supermolecular systems, which can be used to convert light into different types of energy sources. His lab is also devoted to the development and study of environmental molecular sensors (chemosensors) for the low-cost detection of harmful elements such as mercury or other heavy metals.

He has been invited by Matthieu Louis (CRG).
