Guest Editor. Special Issue 'Organocatalysis: Mechanistic Investigations, Design, and Applications'

Delighted to be the guest editor Catalysts_MDPI for a Special Issue: “Organocatalysis: Mechanistic Investigations, Design, and Applications”. This Special Issue focuses on synthetic and computational organic chemistry and their contributions to enlarge and enhance our understanding of organocatalysis. This will include studying, predicting, understanding, and validating chemical reactivity in catalytic systems.

HIGHLY COMMENDED – 2019 L’OREAL-UNESCO FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE UK & IRELAND FELLOWSHIP

Cristina Trujillo has been selected as one of our Highly Commended 2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK and Ireland (FWIS), shortlisted from 337 eligible applications.

2019 L’Oreal-Unesco UK

Awarded 2018 SFI Starting Investigator Research Grant: SFI-news

Cristina Trujillo’s project is “Theoretical Development of New Class of Phase Transfers Catalysts: Applications in the Pharmaceutical Industry” will use computational methods for initial chemical design, rather than to explain experimental findings.
