The researcher of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and director of the Laboratory of Molecular Nanotechnology of the UA, Javier García, finishes to receive the Prize to the Best innovation 2017 in favour of the science and the technology in Spanish in the United States.
RESEARCHERS OF THE UA ARE SELECTED TO ILLUSTRATE THE COVER OF THE PRESTIGIOUS MAGAZINE CHEMICAL SOCIETY REVIEWS.
The researchers of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and University Institute of Materials of Alicante Prof. Antonio Sepúlveda Escribano and Dr. Enrique V. Bouquets-Fernández are authors of a recently published article in the prestigious magazine Chemical Society Reviews ("Metal-organic and covalent organic frameworks ace single-site catalysts"Chem. Soc. Rev., (2017), 46, 3134-3184 DOI: 10.1039/C7CS00033B) that, besides, has been selected to illustrate one of the covers of the magazine.
The article is a collaboration between the University of Alicante and several international institutions of high prestige: TUDelft (Low Countries), University of Gante (Belgium), CNRS-LCS (France) and CSIC-ITQ (Spain).
In the article review the last advances in the design of catalysts with an alone type of active centres and based in two new types of materials, MOF (Metal Organic Frameworks) and COF (Covalent Organic Framework). This article includes inside a special number of the magazine titled "Metal-organic frameworks and porous polymers - current and future challenges",where the more expert prestiges in MOF, COF and porous solids of last generation review the last works published and expose his vision with regard to the future development of these materials and of his applications.
