Smart Molecular Inorganic and Hybrid Materials

The Smart Molecular Inorganic and Hybrid Materials Research Unit is formed by two groups who work especially with inorganic chemistry for biomedical applications, among others: the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis (LMI) group, and the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites (NN) group.

The LMI group studies the synthesis, preparation and characterization of boron-based compounds, such as carboranes, borane clusters and MOFs, for energy and biomedical applications, such as BNCT for cancer treatment.

The NN group focuses its research in the synthesis and characterization of small inorganic nanoparticles or thin films for information technology or biomedical applications, and studies the interaction between these elements and the biological systems, such as cells or the model organism C. elegans.
