Group of Asymmetric Synthesis with Sulfoxides


Research in our group is focused on linking the development of synthetic methodology (new reactions, new elements of stereocontrol, etc.) with the synthesis of complex bioactive products. Our contributions in Organic Synthesis have been aimed to fundamental points such as:
The search of reactions with high regio-, stereo- and enantiocontrol
The asymmetric synthesis of enantiopure compounds using sulfur-based chiral auxilaries
The functionalization of nitrogen and oxygen heterocycles
